The Clackline Lion was erected in 1929 by the students of Clackline school and the headteacher E. W. Membery to commemorate 100 years of British colonisation in Western Australia. A plaque has been placed on the memorial in recognition of Archie H. Paton who was the sculptor of the lion.

On 1 June 1829 Lieutenant -Governor Stirling and his party arrived at Garden Island and erected the necessary buildings to protect the stores. On 18 June, Stirling and others landed on the mainland at Rous Head and formally published, both on the mainland and at Garden Island, this Proclamation constituting His Majesty's Settlement in Western Australia.
