10. Tractor Monument

Adams and Adelaide Streets Wentworth

The first tractor monument in the world was established by the people of Wentworth in honour of the TEA20 Harry Ferguson tractors’ involvement in the building of the massive levee banks that protected Wentworth against the devastating 1956 floods. The cairn of stones where the monument sits is set at the height which water would have inundated the town if the clay levee banks had not been constructed. “By God and by Fergie we beat the Flood!”
