The plaque commemorates the 150th anniversary of the State of Victoria which was commemorated in 1984 and 1985. The 150th anniversary was commemorated by the opening of the Woodside Hall extensions.

Victoria's first successful British settlement was at Portland, on the west coast of what is now Victoria. Portland was settled on 19 November 1834 by the Henty family, who were originally farmers from Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania). Melbourne was founded in 1835 by John Batman. Victoria was officially created a separate colony in 1851, and achieved self government in 1855.
