The Beerburrum Experiment: A History of Australia's First World War One Soldier Settlement, Johnson, Murray
15 Johnson, Murray The Beerburrum Experiment: A History of Australia's First World War One Soldier Settlement
North Melbourne Australian Scholarly Publishing 2016 192533354X / 9781925333541 1st Edition Trade Paperback 
MINT - a NEW copy. Illustrated with Black and White Photographs. 165 pages Although South Australia was the first to legislate for soldier settlement, Queensland seized the initiative when it opened up a large area of land at Beerburrum, just north of Brisbane, to settle military veterans in July 1916. It was an experiment in rural development that was, however, to have unfortunate results, for in far too many cases returned servicemen, their wives and children were confronted with severe environmental difficulties, economic hardship and bureaucratic obstruction. Beerburrum exemplified some of the worst characteristics of the Australian soldier settlement schemes. At the same time it is a tale of courageous individuals caught up in circumstances beyond their control, and a town that was determined to survive against all odds. ID291072
