The Memorial Walk was formed by the work of the Mount Stuart Guides in 1976 and commemorates local Guide leader, Fiona Allan (1952 - 1978), who died in Nepal in December 1978.  She was 26 years old, and at the time of her death was employed as a psychology tutor at the University of Tasmania

When Fiona Allan died, a single file walking track was built so that walkers could enjoy the birds, in her memory. The Guides put in about thirty railway sleepers to prevent erosion and planted the native trees and shrubs donated to the project. Another Guide project was to put ninety-seven railway sleepers into the western face to improve access for firemen and children. 

In 2000, the Hobart City Council gravelled and widened the track.
