The Norfolk Pine tree commemorates the centenary of the European settlement of South Australia from 1836 to 1936. A plaque was unveiled at the tree in 1986 to commemorate the Jubilee 150 of South Australia.

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.
