The plaque commemorates charity worker Dragan Miljanovic (1922 -1974). 

Dragan Miljanovic emigrated to Australia in 1948. After a term in the immigration centre at Bathurst, he spent four years in a similar camp at Woodside, South Australia.

In 1954 he began twenty years of unselfish service to others, initially through the Good Neighbour Council of South Australia which helped immigrants to assimilate. With his donkey, Don Pedro, he patrolled Adelaide beaches in 1961-62, collecting money for the surf life-saving movement and he also gave children rides on Don Pedro at charitable functions.

He won the Gertrude Kumm award for citizenship, presented annually to an immigrant who had made an outstanding contribution to the community. He died in 1974.
