Join Denis Hare, BEM to discover the story of the Beerburrum Soldier Settlement scheme. Denis has a keen interest in military history and served 23 years in the Australian Army.

2016 will mark the 100th anniversary of the Beerburrum settlement where over 500 ex-soldiers received land grants after World War I. The hardship, poor soil, poor advice, plus their own illness from war service was just too much and many walked away from their holding.

The Beerburrum Soldier Settlement is an important chapter in Australia's military and social history.
