A monument commemorates the settlement founded in 1826 by Captain Samuel Wright, Lieutenant Burchill, explorer William Hovell and twenty-one convicts.  It was the second settlement in Victoria and it was founded on the fear that the French might invade Australia, but it was abandoned fifteen months later.
