Bruce, between picturesque Wilmington and Quorn, lies on the Willochra Plain surrounded by the Flinders Ranges and the Horseshoe Range.
Mount Remarkable, Mount Brown and Moockra Tower are among many landmarks that can be seen and explored from this 1880s settlement.
Bruce has three cottages, a memorial institute and a railway station that has been restored. The railway line is still in existence from Bruce to Quorn, and is owned by the Pichi Richi Railway Society.
During Bruce’s settlement, settlers were allocated a square mile, 640 acre blocks of land of what had been open pastoral holdings. In the 1890s drought forced many settlers off their properties and in most cases the land was reverted to grazing for sheep and cattle.
