The Henry Angel Trackhead on the Hume and Hovell Track has an interpretive display and commemorates Henry Angel, convict and pastoralist who played a role in the expedition of Hume & Hovell in 1824. 

In 1824 he was one of six servants assigned to accompany Hamilton Hume and William Hovell on their journey of exploration in which they discovered the River Murray. Both leaders testified to Angel's ability in managing working horses and cattle and attributed part of their success to his careful planning of transport arrangements. On his return he was rewarded with a pair of bullocks and a ticket-of-leave for the Illawarra district.
