No one knows a place like who lives there. From the words of early settlers to those of a 21st-century child, Lake Grace 100 Years: A community MemoIr celebrates the life of a West Australian rural community. Like Grace, this is a book full of heart, humour and hope. A beautiful book to enjoy and come back to. (back cover)
The hand-drawn maps of West Australian history record the exploration by European Australians into the south-east; the tracks of surveyor John Septimus Roe in 1848 and John Holland in 1893. The large lake east of Dumbleyung would become a reference point in future explorations and for sandalwood collectors who travelled through the district from the late 1870s. Lake Grace mostly likely named after Grace Drake-Brockman is recorded in the ink and watercolour maps of 1906 and 1909 and mentioned in newspapers of those years. (Page 4)
