A lovely place to visit with plenty of history. The olive groves are beautiful & over 100 years old. House & museum are interesting also on the property. If visiting Renmark, worth a visit.

Had a lovely time exploring the museums at the old homestead. I particularly liked the local history museum part, I could have spent hours there! The house itself was gorgeous, well preserved with some of the original furniture! Would definitely return to explore again!
