Beachport Old Wool and Grain Store Museum features displays about the local fishing industry, whaling, agricultural history and the Buandik people. The whaling display includes harpoons, bones and interpretive display panels that tell the stories of Beachport’s whaling past. Other displays include a large group of heavy agriculture machinery, wood working hand tools, a complete collection of electrical insulators used in the Melbourne to Darwin overland telegraph line and an extensive display of rabbit traps. A smithy shop is set up showing working conditions as though the smithy has just left the building. A 1920s school room is complete with teacher and two student mannequins and books and writing materials over the ages, photographs and blackboard exercises. There is a new display (opened 2011) that focuses on the interactions between the Buandik Indigenous people and Beachport’s European settlers. Several upstairs rooms have been set up as they were when used for accommodation in the early 1900s as a kitchen, music and dining rooms and bedrooms. Upstairs displays include cooking implements and clothing.

The Strathalbyn and District Heritage Centre is in the former police station (built 1858) and courthouse (added in 1867). Features include several rooms set out in the style of the Victorian era, a room reflecting changes in health care over the years, and a courtyard with very high stone walls. From the courtyard, one can access the three jail cells.

Kingston National Trust Museum

The museum features many pioneer items connected with local history including ship wreck artefacts.

The museum displays many examples of household items used by early settlers including kitchen and laundry memorabilia, telephones and typewriters as well as agricultural equipment, saddlery and horse drawn vehicles, tractors and small engines. There is also a small collection of Aboriginal artefacts and a display telling the story of the fishing industry, one of Kingston’s principle trades from the 19th century. In addition, there are interesting examples from the bark tanning industry, unique to this area from the 1870s when black wattle bark was collected and ground into powder to tan leather.

The ship wreck display includes one of the most significant items in the museum’s collection, the 8 foot anchor from the Margaret Brock, the coastal trading ship that was wrecked on its way to Melbourne from Port Adelaide in 1852 after striking an offshore reef south of Guichen Bay. The reef is now known as the Margaret Brock Reef.

Olivewood

A 1880s wooden-floored log cabin house originally designed for the Chaffey brothers.

Designed as a log cabin for Canadian Charles Chaffey, younger brother of George and WB Chaffey who established the pioneering irrigation and fruit growing area of Renmark, this 1880s wooden-floored house is furnished from this period. The property remains a working orangery and the orchard is fully operational, including its famous olive trees.

The original olive oil processing shed behind the log cabin now houses some of the National Trust collection of artefacts and photographs. Nearby there is also a packing shed constructed in American style c1890 with a large overhead loft. It houses a citrus and dried fruit packing plant and associated items. Much of the museum collection has been moved into a newly constructed shed in the car park.
