The plaque commemorates Dan Seymour.

Dan Seymour is the man whom R. M. Williams got to find a route up the Great Divide which is known as the National Trail. In 1950 Dan came to Australia from Canada where he was born and for 20 years worked his way around the outback as a drover, ringer, dogger and fencer.

It was around the rodeos that he met R. M. Williams and a great friendship developed. When Williams proposed the National Trail, Dan volunteered to ride it. He left Ferntree Gully near Melbourne in February 1972 with two saddle horses, a pack horse and bluey. After riding the route of the Trail he returned to live in Dorrigo in northern New South Wales.
