This cairn commemorates the original pioneers of Yandilla, George Richard GORE and his brother Ralph Thomas who were the first permanent white persons to take up this stretch of country on the Darling Downs arriving in October 1841.
They called this place Grass Tree Creek abd then Yandilla. This then formed the most westerly point of settlement on the Darling Downs. The GORE brothers and the ensuing generations expanded Yandilla to cover 688 square miles. The family developed Yandilla and retained occupancy until 1911.
This is a bicentennial project of the Tummaville branch of the Q.C.W.A. and was funded by the Australian Bicentennial Authority. This cairn was unveiled by a descendant of the GORE family on 16 April, 1988
