Talisker Mines – Crushing House


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.
