Monument marks the opening of the Buntine Highway which commemorates the road train pioneer and drover Noel Buntine.
Noel Buntine contributed to the development of road trains and beef roads. Following his sudden death in 1994, a section of the Buchanan Highway was renamed the Buntine Highway. A twenty-three tonne granite boulder with an inlaid bronze plaque featuring an inscribed B-model road train now marks the corner of the Victoria Highway and the Old Delamere Road to Top Springs. With the crossing of the Buchanan and Buntine Highways at Top Springs, Boss Drover and Road train Pioneer will be remembered for all time.
