General:
Lake Grace is the major town in the region and is named after the shallow lake 10kms west of the town. The Shire of Lake Grace is comprised of the towns Lake Grace, Newdegate, Lake King and Varley. The region is known for its wide open spaces and stars, vast salt lakes and friendly country towns where everybody says hello.
History:
The first European to explore the area was Surveyor General John Septimus Roe who passed through in 1848 and named Mt Madden, the most prominent granite outcrop in the area. In 1909 the surveyor, F. S. Brockman named Lake Grace after his wife, Grace Bussell. Shortly afterwards, settlement occurred in the area but it wasn’t until 1914 that Lake Grace got its own school. The Australian Inland Mission Hospital was built in the town in 1925.
