This historic bollard was presented by the City of Westminister, London, England to the Shire of Mornington to mark its centenary on 31 May 1993.

The bollard originally stood at the head of the steps to the River Thames opposite the Millbank Prison from where until 1867, prisoners sentenced to transportation embarked on their journey to Australia.

His Excellency the Honourable Richard E. McGarvie Governor of Victoria unveiled this historic bollard on 8th Ocotber 1993 to commemorate its relocation from the City of Westminster to the Shire of Mornington
