A plaque commemorates Lloyd Meyers who suffered a fatal heart attack after he rescued two boys stranded in a rip on Park Beach back in August, 1995. The two English boys, aged 10 and 11,  were caught in a rip on the beach while holidaying in Coffs Harbour.

The plaque was vandalised in October 2010 and a new plaque was placed at the site.
