Group Settlement Centenary Celebrations
26/03/2022 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
The Margaret River & Districts Historical Society is celebrating the Centennial of Group Settlement to our district. This event will commemorate the emigration of thousands of men, woman and children to our district beginning in 1921, firstly to Manjimup, then to our area of the South West. The event will have several attractions and activities showing a glimpse into the life experienced by the “Groupies”. These will include local crafts people, demonstrating wood turning, weaving, rug making, wool spinning and cooking activities. Farm animals will be on display and local music bands playing. Local School children will be parading down the main street with hand made banners depicting the Group Settlers history.
