Keith, recognised as the Gateway to the South East and Limestone Coast, was proclaimed in 1889 with agriculture as its base. Keith is also recornised as the "lucerne capital of Australia" with its distinctive purple paddocks.
Visitor information is available at the Gateway to the South East and Limestone Coast Information Bay and the Mobil Service Station at the Dukes and Riddoch Highway junction.
In the early days, a railway siding was established on the Adelaide line near Mt Monster to serve the pastoral leases that had been taken up in the surrounding district during the 1850's. The Keith district typifies "real Australian countryside". Today the township services a diverse agricultural area.
