The Farm Shed Heritage Museum, Kadina

Galleries, Museums and Collections

At the Farm Shed Heritage Museum, Kadina 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 land clearing 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.

Guided tours are available for groups, please call Copper Coast Visitor Information Centre to arrange this.

A wheelchair, walking frame and mobility scooter are available to use within the museum, please call to ensure availability.
