The plaque commemorates the centenary of Geelong West becoming a municipality.

During the mid 1850s there was local agitation for municipal separation from the Geelong town council. Twenty years of effort were rewarded on 29 May, 1875, when the Geelong West borough was proclaimed. Its western and eastern boundaries were McCurdy Road and La Trobe Terrace respectively, and the northern and southern boundaries more or less Church Street and Aberdeen Street. On 18 May, 1992, Geelong West city became part of Greater Geelong city.
