CABARLAH PIONEER BICENTENNIAL 
MEMORIAL 
1788 - 1988 
In commemoration of the early pioneers of the Cabarlah District who settled this area in the middle eighteen hundreds. 
The district was closely established with families earning their living from sawmilling and mixed farming. 
In 1883 the railway came to Cabarlah and three years latter(sic) was extended through Crows Nest. The line was closed in 1961.
The railway station was located 30m behind this cairn and the line crossed the new England highway at this point. 
This memorial was funded by the Australian Bicentennial Authority and the Crows Nest Shire Council and constructed by Council's workforce.
