The Farm Shed Museum

You will find something for everyone in The Farm Shed Heritage Museum. Matta House was the mine manager’s house for the Matta Matta Mine in the Wallaroo Mines area, where Copper was discovered in 1859 and mining ceased in 1923, and is in its original location.

Over a century of Australian farming history is also on show across half a hectare of undercover exhibition space. The interpretive displaysbring together the stories and farming collection to which the Yorke Peninsula is well known.

The museum is owned and managed by the Kadina Branch of the National Trust of South Australia. It lays claim to the country’s most comprehensive collection of dryland farming equipment. Visitors can take a self-guided tour through the centre. Guided tours for group bookings are also available.
