A plaque on a seat and a stone memorial commemorate the site of the first settlement by the Scott Brothers in 1845. 

The first of the squatters to occupy land around the future Warracknabeal, were the Scott brothers, who in 1845 moved to a spot on Yarriambiack Creek which they called “Werracknabeal” after the Aboriginal word describing the gum trees shading the watercourse and established their “run” or station.
