When the town was surveyed in 1890, it was laid out over part of the station cemetery. One grave, that of James Simson, is still in good condition on the side of the road now called Simson Street. The station homestead, Willowbank, was built about 1870, and is still standing. There are also stables and other outbuildings from this era. The Post Office opened on 3 October 1890. The railway arrived in 1893 on the line from Murtoa to Hopetoun. The railway station is no longer standing, but there are large grain silos on the railway station site. The railway tracks were converted to standard gauge in 1995 to allow large trains carrying mineral sands from Hopetoun to Hamilton. # Weather # Things to do Golfers play at the Brim Golf Club at the Recreation Reserve.
