The plaque unveiled for Victoria's 150th anniversary commemorates the re-enactment of the Stage Coach/ Pack Train journey between Port Albert and Walhalla. 

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.
