Moora Pioneer Memorial ClockPrint Page Print this page

Pioneer Memorial Clock dedicated to early settlers. The clock memorial was the instigation of the Moora Rotary club who contributed $2000 with a community contribution of $5000. The Premier David Brand officially commemorated the memorial in 1968. The history of the CWA authored by A Topham was sealed into the plinth.

The area was first explored by George Fletcher Moore who named the Moore River in 1836. The settlement of the area occurred in the 1840s but there was no need for a township. As late as 1873, when the telegraph passed through the area, the operator was a member of the family at Berkshire Valley. The town eventually grew up on the banks of the river and was officially gazetted on 12 April 1895.
