Recognising creative ideas that changed the world

Our Mission and how you can help


The Headlie Taylor Heritage Project aims to recognise the historical contribution to agriculture of Headlie Taylor who was Australia’s greatest inventor in the field of agricultural machinery.

The Headlie Taylor Project will recognise this remarkable man by crafting a sculpture in front of the Headlie Taylor Header Museum at Henty. This will Stage One and will raise the profile of the museum as we acknowledge a part of Australia’s history.

The project will also provide an ongoing memorial scholarship to support a new invention in agriculture, to perpetuate the endeavours of Headlie Taylor and his development of the header harvester. This will be Stage Two.

The expected cost for the sculpture and surrounds will be in the vicinity of $100,000. A scholarship will be generated from a memorial trust fund which will be developed from an additional $100,000, to securely preserve the capital and provide the annual scholarship. Funding is anticipated to be jointly raised by government grants, corporate sponsorship and public donations.
