A monument and a small rest area commemorates the pioneers of Goyura and District.

To the north of Warracknabeal, in the former Karkarooc Shire, the first officially gazetted township was Goyura, proclaimed in 1889, where a school had opened in 1887. This was at the centre of a farming district established by the first settlers on part of the ‘Lake Corrong’ pastoral run.
