The plaque commemorates the Grain Trade re-enactment in 1986. The plaque features an etching of the sailing ship Falie

South Australia’s Jubilee sailing ship Falie was bought in the Netherlands by the Spencer Gulf Transport Company on 21 October 1922 and arrived at the Semaphore anchorage on 31 August 1923, after encountering rough weather in her passage across the Bight from Western Australia. From then on she was used for trade around South Australia transporting wheat from the West Coast and the Gulf. In 1936 she was put into interstate trade and carried timber to Tasmania.
