Abstract

The region known as the Western District of Victoria was seen as particularly suitable for the application of land-settlement policy. The study illustrates how the basic principles of closer settlement were used to further the interests of particular groups. Secondly it highlights the flaws in foundations of the Closer Settlement Act which impacted on the settlers chances of success.
