Lake King Awards

Lake King  Active Citizenship of the Year Award for a Community Event of Group

‘Lake Kingfest’ nominated by Lake King Progress Association

The 'Lake Kingfest' organised by the Lake King Progress Association saw the official opening of the Bush Engineers Tractor Museum.

The event also marked the 40th Anniversary of the Church and the Tavern's 30th Birthday.

The combined celebration bought together the whole community and drew previous residents with a connection to Lake King back from across the State. The diverse event offered something of interest to both past and present members of the community with the 'Bush Engineers Tractor Museum' a lasting reminder to all future residents of the ingenuity and enterprise of the towns farming pioneers.

The Bush Engineers Tractor Museum has given the town of Lake King a focal point and encourages tourists to stop when travelling through the town.

The interactive display has bought to life the unique history of the homemade tractors of the area. It provides a visual and oral resource for surrounding schools and all those with an interest to learn about our local history.
