In 2009, the City (then Shire) of Busselton celebrated 175 years since the district of The Vasse was settled by non-Aboriginal people in 1834. In response to community interest, the City commissioned Fremantle sculptor, Greg James, to create a series of life size bronze figures based on the history of The Vasse. This includes the Traditional Custodians, the Wadandi Bibulmun people who lived in the area of Undalup, American whalers, the timber industry, Spanish settlers and the people who called The Vasse home and established it as a successful outpost from Perth.
