Wolseley



Wolseley is situated 5kms south of the Adelaide to Melbourne Highway and 13km east of Bordertown.

The surrounding area is considered by many to be some of the best grain growing country in Australia with high yielding cereal crops, legumes and canola.

Both gladioli and lavender farms are nearby to visit by arrangement.

Wolseley was once a bustling railway town. It was where the Adelaide to Melbourne broad gauge line met the Mount Gambier narrow gauge line.

The Hotel was built in 1922. World War II Fuel Storage Tanks are well worth seeing at the western edge of town. The Fuel Tanks were constructed by the RAAF during WWII and camouflaged to look like farm buildings. The depot ceased operation in 1944.

There is a unique stand of bulokes and over 80 native species of flora in the Wolseley Common Conservation Park on the southern edge of town.

Pick up a copy of the Wolseley Historical Walk with interpretive signage and photos along the way.

Check out the tennis courts, oval and playground in the main street.
