About

Items of interest are the church altar from St. Canute’s Catholic Church; an assorted collection of birds’ eggs, shells, flora and vertebras; and items and Aboriginal artefacts.

The sheds and outer buildings have collections of early agricultural machinery including the renowned Sylvia Birdseye’s Strait 8 Nash car. Sylvia conducted the first passenger ‘carrying’ buses to and from Adelaide in 1938.

Of interest are blacksmith tools and printing equipment dating from 1912, used at the local newspaper office, the Sentinel, before the office was relocated in 1974 to Ceduna.

A doctor’s surgery with dental and surgical instruments used from 1920 to 1983, including an iron lung, will fascinate you. The Pug ’n’ Pine cottage showcases many items such as furniture and clothing used by early settlers dating from 1886.
