Historical markers Database

Are there any historical markers in your area? Have they been documented? Consider adding them to the Historical Markers Database, although a majority of its current content is American, it looks like it will accept registrations from anywhere. It already has over 20,000 markers currently listed and described on its website making it a terrific tool for exploring United States Local History. A search for Australia does give some interesting results including information and links to George Chaffey of Mildura fame. Is there a Victorian or Australian equivalent to this database?

The nearest I know of is the War Memorials database in Australia
