Making History on the Central and Southern Yorke Peninsula

Loading ketch from dray at Pine Point (Muloowurtie), 1915 (State Library of South Australia, PRG 280/1/12/26)

Stansbury’s enterprising Wurm family is the focus of this workshop led by descendant, Richard Maerschel. A broader story will also be explored including how SA’s wheat and barley economy and more were established on Narungga Country. Forgotten pictures and objects from the 1870s onwards of central and southern Yorke Peninsula must be in many sheds and cupboards. Dust them off and bring them along with stories to share.

Afternoon tea provided by Stansbury ladies – donation at the door. RSVP by 12 April for catering purposes. Before the session, visit the Wurm relics at St Augustine’s Church, open 12-1pm and the Museum (Stansbury’s first school buildings), open 1-2pm.

Bookings essential by phone/email.
