A monument has been erected on the median strip in Bay Road.In 1802 Matthew Flinders named Streaky Bay whilst on his voyage in the Investigator. In his log of 5 February 1802, he describes:"And the water was much discoloured in Streaks... and I called it Streaky Bay" It is now known thought these streaks are caused by the release of oils by certain species of seaweed in the bay.The first European land exploration was conducted on behalf of the Secondary Towns Association by John Hill and Samuel Stephens, whose expedition arrived at Streaky Bay on 15 August 1839 using the chartered brig Rapid as a base.
