Memorial stones commemorate Mayor Henry Cook and Ferntree Pipeline Development.
In 1861 the first stage of a new Hobart water supply scheme, to take water from Fork Creek and Browns River to the Waterworks below Ridgeway, was completed. The beautiful stonework of the various aqueducts, spillways and towers are still well preserved and can be seen when walking along the Pipeline Track.
