The monument commemorates the wreck of the clipper ship Walter Hood, which was originally built for trade between Australia and China. In 1870, bound for Sydney, Walter Hood was caught in a gale and wrecked on the reef off Monument Beach. The monument is also the burial site of the captain and crew.
