Bruce was first settled in 1850 and declared a town in 1876, replete with parklands and boasting cricket and tennis teams. It suffered terribly from the 1864-66 drought, then irreparably from the following drought years of the 1880s and 1890s. An historic railway town in the centre of the Willochra Plain, 334 km north of Adelaide, it was on the Peterborough–Quorn railway line, part of the train voyage from Sydney to Perth between 1917 and 1937.
As of 2004[update], Bruce had a population of four.
