The plaque commemorates Walter Bennett, Kevin Sharp and Raymond Sharp, members of the Kilmore Golf Club who were killed at the Port Arthur massacre in 1996.

The Port Arthur massacre of 28 April 1996 was a killing spree which claimed 35 lives and 37 wounded mainly at the historic Port Arthur prison colony, a popular tourist site in south-eastern Tasmania.

Martin Bryant, a 28-year-old from New Town, eventually pleaded guilty to the crimes and was given 35 life sentences without possibility of parole. He is now interned in Risdon Prison.
