Background to this project
Council has initiated a check on the heritage places within the Yankalilla District that were identified by a regional heritage survey of the Fleurieu Peninsula in 1985.
There were 185 places recorded. Of these, 56 were identified as being of State significance with 20 places currently recognised within the State Heritage Register. There are no places of Local heritage value currently recognized by the Development Plan.
Since 1985 six historic buildings have been demolished, and many unoccupied stone cottages have become ruins. Your input will help Council to develop ways of making heritage an asset to owners and to the community in general. Some places appear to have been missed too.
So look around – and let us know what should be conserved and cared for.
Yankalilla & Districts Historical Society is a wonderful source of information about places and spaces in the District. The Society provides help to people wanting to know more about local history every Wednesday morning from 10 -12 in the community library.
