The border marker and plaque commemorate the centenary of the Federation of Australia of the Australian colonies in 1901 and commemorates the QLD / NSW border by surveyors Francis Roberts and Isaiah Rowland 1863 - 1866.

The Federation of Australia was the process by which the six separate British self governing colonies of Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and Western Australia formed one nation.  When the Constitution of Australia came into force, on 1 January 1901, the colonies collectively became states of the Commonwealth of Australia.
