About Mildura's WWI soldier settlements

In the 1920s, following their return from the battlefields of WWI, returned servicemen were allocated blocks of land under the Government’s soldier settlement scheme. Settlers had access to Murray River water and improved irrigation technology, both of which allowed new citrus and vine plantations to prosper.

Historical Victorian newspaper articles from this period reveal the bracing challenges as well as rich opportunities faced by soldier settlers in Mildura and the Sunraysia region.
