The plaque commemorates the Cameraygal people who defended their country by resisting the British invasion of Australia.

Woodford Bay is historically significant as it was at this site, on 14 February, 1790, during the Governance of Captain Arthur Phillip, that the first recorded meeting in the Lane Cove area took place between the Cameraygal people and the British.
