A free shuttle bus will run every hour from 10.30am visiting the town sites relevant to the George Brinkworth family. Guides will explain the contribution and legacy of this family to the community. A tour booklet tells their story.
In the museum building an exhibition tells the remarkable story of George’s father and mother, brothers and sisters who from the 1840’s - 1880’s opened up land for agriculture in areas from Port Adelaide to Quorn in the rapid push North.
