Information

During World War One, a large area of land was resumed from the large station holdings of Mt Hutton, Myall Downs, Bymount, Gubberamunda and Cornwall. This land was cut into blocks ranging in area from 640 to 1280 acres.

A Soldier Settlement scheme was established in the Injune-Gunnewin-Bymount area in 1919 by the Government. Land adjacent to and in reasonable distance of the proposed railway line being built from Roma to Injune was allotted to Returned Service men from the War.

Gunnewin was one of these settlements. Unfortunately, the soldier settler's farms were not very economical and many of the soldier settlers returned to the city.
