The bust commemorates poet A. B. `Banjo` Paterson. His pen name 'Banjo' was derived from the name of one of his horses on the Illalong property. 

The family of the poet Banjo Paterson moved to the Binalong district in 1869 when he was five years old. He attended the primary school in Binalong but later went to boarding school in Sydney returning home in the holidays. The district features in a number of his poems, for example, Pardon, the son of Reprieve. Paterson's father is buried in the local cemetery.
