The plaque commemorates the "Gulf Road" re-enactment of copper carting from Burra to Port Wakefield to commemorate South Australia's Jubilee 150. The mules and donkeys passed through Hoyleton on 22nd October 1986. 

The British Province of South Australia was established by the South Australia Act 1834 in August 1834, and the South Australian Company formed on 9 October 1835 to fulfil the purposes of the Act by forming a new colony financed by land sales. The first settlers arrived on Kangaroo Island in July 1836, with all of the ships later sailing north soon afterwards to anchor in Holdfast Bay on the advice of Surveyor-General, Colonel William Light. The Proclamation of the new Province by Governor Hindmarsh at Glenelg took place on 28 December 1836.
