The locality of Lemnos, near Shepparton Victoria was established in 1927 as a soldier settlement zone after the First World War. It was named by Anzac Ernest Hill after the Greek island of Lemnos on which he landed and was the main base of operations for the Gallipoli Campaign. There are many other streets named after Lemnos throughout Australia and many Gallipoli Anzacs gave the name Lemnos to their children. Lemnos Kelly of Tibooburra is believed to be named in honour of his uncles that are buried there.
