Highlands is a rural farming community situated on the Australian great dividing range,  on a granite plateau with an elevation up 600 metres.

In the 1880's the rural areas were surveyed into plots of roughly 320 acres (a square mile).

The original pioneering families were Lade, Chisholm, McAlpin, Minchinton, Yorston and Zoch families. 

This circle of stones situated at the Highlands intersection commemorates these pioneer families and were set in place on the occasion of the centenary of the district in 1982.
