About the listing
The Heytesbury Settlement Historic Park is located on the banks of Simpson Lake and commemorates the development of the Heytesbury Settlement Scheme. This was a major land clearing exercise focused on creating soldier settlement farms in the 1950's.
Displays in the park and interpretation in a rotunda overlooking the lake include details of machinery and equipment that was used to clear the bush and the endeavour of local farmers that have resulted in one of Australia's most productive dairy farming regions.
