Lemnos 3631

Lemnos, is a rural locality and small town in northern Victoria, 8 km. north-east of Shepparton. It is in the irrigated orchard/dairying country of the Goulburn Valley.

Lemnos was named after the island in the Aegean Sea to which Australian soldiers were evacuated after the Gallipoli campaign in the first World War.

The Lemnos primary school was opened in 1927, a few years after irrigation came to the district. During the 1950s there was a steady increase in the already densely populated farm district as migrants also took up orcharding and vegetable growing. In 1962 Campbell's Soups (Aust.) Pty Ltd., opened a food-processing plant on 55 ha. at Lemnos, close to the supply of tomatoes. The factory is easily seen by the water-tank tower, painted to represent a Campbell's soup can. There is a large water storage for factory and domestic use.

Lemnos is on the railway line between Shepparton and Dookie. It has a school (seventy-five pupils, 1998), oval and tennis courts. Its census populations have been 155 (1933), 249 (1947) and 262 (1966).
