Overview

At the Farm Shed Museum interpretive displays bring together the farming stories that have been growing for the last 50 years. Yorke Peninsula is renowned for its innovation in dryland farming machinery and techniques. The stump-jump plough was just the beginning! See it in action on the screen in the landclearing display and don't miss 'Her Side of the Story' about women on farms.

The early history of Wallaroo Mines and the Kadina Township is included along with Matta House. Matta House is the original mine manager's residence which built in 1863. The house still has a shingle roof and is furnished to reflect the height of the mining era. A schoolroom refurbished to its 1950s origins is a favourite with school groups.

The Farm Shed is open 7 days a week (excluding Good Friday and Christmas Day) Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm and weekends and Public Holidays 10am to 4pm. Please allow at least an hour for your visit.

A wheelchair, walking frame and mobility scooter are available to use within The Farm Shed museum. Please call us prior to your arrival to ensure availability.
