About July 1933 the land of East Palmerston was surveyed to enable 10,400 acres be offered for selection in 55 lots. By September 1938, a large population was living in the area with some farms sufficiently established to supply cream to the Millaa Millaa butter factory.
On 25 April (Anzac Day) 2008, a memorial was unveiled at Palmerston East State School at 2068 Palmerston Highway commemorating the Australian servicemen and women who served during wars and other conflicts.
