The Soldier Settlers of Tuggeranong - A photographic exhibition

Free, Lanyon Education Centre

Discover the stories of the eight men who returned from service in the Great War to take up soldier settler blocks on the former Tuggeranong property.  This remarkable photographic exhibition reveals their struggles with debt, drought, the rabbit plague and uncertain markets, while they were still living with the legacy of their war service.

This project has been created by Minders of Tuggeranong Homestead (MOTH) and funded by the Commonwealth Armistice Centenary Grants Program.
