This month South Australia celebrates it’s History Festival from 1-31 May.
Did you know that the Talisker Mines located adjacent to Deep Creek
Conservation Park form an important part of our State’s heritage?
Silver lead ore was mined from 1862 until 1891.
At its peak the nearby town of Silverton had 300 residents,
a school, a post office and a hotel. Today the area is known as
Talisker Conservation Park. You can still visit the ruins
of the mine along an interpretive walking trail.
It not only explains the various buildings but also provides
great views of the surrounding bush land with views across to Kangaroo Island.
