Herstory

The life and times of Anne Drysdale and Caroline Newcomb

What We Do

A group that meets to talk about the life and times of Anne Drysdale and Caroline Newcomb over an afternnon tea.

The Women

Anne Drysdale was born in Scotland in 1792 and she came to Australia in 1840, a woman by herself to become a farmer.
Caroline Newcomb born in 1812 and came to Australia in 1833
These two women farmed much of the Drysdale, Clifton Springs Curlewis area and their homestead still stands in Curlewis. These ladies were firsts in so many fields and continue to inspire. We have celebrated many anniversaries of these women over the years but we believe they can continue to add to our community even today.
