The Queen Mary Gardens has been a green and pleasant place to local residents of St.Arnaud and passing travellers since its creation in 1884. Thoughout the dry summers of the region, the shady trees, green lawns and colourful flower beds, and in the winter the sunshine through the leafless trees, have provided generations with the pleasures of a continuing garden.

The squatters on their large pastoral runs did not welcome the Lands Acts of the 1860’s. Under terms of the 1869 land act the selector held his 320 acre block under license from the Crown for 3 years he paid 2/- per acre and was expected to make 320 pounds worth of improvements such as a house fencing and clearing of the land he also had to reside on the land. Once the selector fulfilled these conditions he could continue paying rent for a further 7 years until the full purchase price of 1 pound per acre had been paid he then owned the land.
