The first European settlers were the squatters Charles and Robert von Steiglitz who established a run in 1847. Alluvial gold was found on their property in 1853 by Andrew Love, the son of Geelong's first resident clergyman. However, a gold rush did not occur until a rich reef was discovered by William Hooley and Joseph Davis on Sutherland Creek in 1855, and sparked the gold rush which led to the establishment of the town. The cairn near this site by the bridge at Steiglitz is made of stone from the original Von Steiglitz homestead.
