The time capsule commemorates the bicentenary of the arrival of the First Fleet in Australia.  

A sundial has been placed on top of the cairn in memory of Graeme F Campbell (1929-2009) and Janice Campbell.

The Bicentenary marked the 200th anniversary of the arrival of the First Fleet in Sydney in 1788. Captain Arthur Phillip (1738-1814), commander of the First Fleet, established the foundations of a British colony at Sydney Cove on the 26 January 1788.
