Memorial commemorates Romeo Lahey founder of the Binna Burra Guest House in 1933.

In 1872 when the world's very first national park was established in the United States, Robert Collins, a local pastoralist, was determined to preserve the remaining areas of the McPherson Ranges. Romeo Lahey, a sawmiller and engineer from Canungra joined Collins in his efforts, and by 1915 the area that we now know as Lamington National Park was declared. Romeo Lahey and Arthur Groom went on to establish the Binna Burra Guest House in the 1930s, and by 1994, Lamington National Park was listed as a World Heritage Area.
