AT THE END OF THE WAR FROM DIGGER TO FARMER

March 30th to June 30th 2019

After World War 1 the Soldiers’ Settlement scheme was established throughout Australia with South Australia first enacting legislation in 1915. In Victoria the Discharged Soldiers’ Settlement Act of 1917 established the scheme in this State. Until 1934, 11,639 returned servicemen were allocated blocks under the scheme. Unfortunately not all were successful.

                                                 This exhibition will tell the stories of those who took up land in our district.
