Kornheim Pioneer Memorial Print Page Print this page

Marks the site of St. Peter`s Lutheran Church (1876-1922), school and manse and commemorates local pioneers. In the 1860s German farmers from Victoria`s Western District and from South Australia started colonising the southern Wimmera region.

Many villages developed, some with German names (Kirchheim, Grünwald, Kornheim), some with Aboriginal names. These German settlers made a big contribution to the development of the wheat industry in the Wimmera.
