Melrose Heritage Museum

Galleries, Museums and Collections

The Melrose Heritage Museum is an adventure into the past. Discover the history of this unique area by visiting the authentic exhibitions and audio visual presentations that tell the story of opening the north of South Australia, with the establishment in 1848 of the police and judicial presence at this site.

Learn about Goyder’s Line, which runs through this area, bringing to life the hardships the pioneers suffered. Experience all aspects of rural settlement, mining, workingmen’s blocks, a village settlement and a returned soldier-training farm. The story of the European pioneers and the Nukunu Aboriginal people are well interpreted. There are five buildings to explore.
