Walter ZumsteinPrint Page Print this page

A monument commemorates Walter Zumstein, a beekeeper and nature lover, who arrived in the area in 1910 and pioneered the Grampians area.  

He settled on the banks of the MacKenzie River and soon cultivated a menagerie of native birds and animals, with which he shared the environment. Here he found nectar for his bees and the companionship of the wild creatures he loved, and in 1923 opened a tourist park.
