Monuments at the site demonstrate a change in architectural style and social means of commemorating historic events such as the first European crossing of the Blue Mountains, May 1813 by Blaxland, Lawson and Wentworth, survey of the first road by George Evans, November 1813 and building of the first road, Cox's Road, in 1814. Further along Mount York Road is historic convict built Lawson's Long Alley and Lockyers Line of Road; Berghoffers Pass and Bardens Lookout .
