Heritage Walk - Willunga Township

Healthy Active Lifestyles Onkaparinga (HALO) and the Willunga Branch of the National Trust of South Australia invite you on a 90 minute guided heritage walk around the Willunga Township.

The historic town of Willunga was established in 1839 as the half-way point between the new settlement in Adelaide and the whaling station at Encounter Bay. Slate was discovered in 1840 and slate roofs, flooring and walls can still be seen throughout the town.

Choose one of two different walks to introduce you to some of the town’s earliest buildings.

When: Sunday 11 November or Sunday 9 December 2018, 10 - 11.30am
Where: Willunga Courthouse Museum, 61 High Street, Willunga

Walk 1 - Courthouse loop

You will discover Willunga’s main street (High Street) and explore the shops, houses and hotels that have been the heart of town life since the 1840s. See some hidden treasures on the back streets during the return loop to the Courthouse Museum.

Walk 2 - Courthouse to Show Hall

You will explore three of Willunga’s beautiful churches and discover some of the historic houses in the town. You will visit also the former railway station before finishing at the Show Hall.
