Prospect Hill Historical Museum

Celebrate History Month!

Are you a history lover? Join us for a day tour to Prospect Hill, where you can explore the past and present of this charming town. Opening especially for our visit, the historic buildings are situated along the main street and include the general store and post office which were built in 1872, signifying the beginnings of the town.

Winter Mystery

Mystery Tour


Thursday 20th or Friday 21st June

There is no telling where we’re going today, you’ll have to guess along the way! Here are some hints to get you started…it’s not a place for the faint-hearted. We’ll take you to a place with a bit of history, a touch of danger and a little mystery. It involves water, but not at the shore, might give you a fright, but doesn’t say roar. Our tail has a bit of a bite and involves a story of a young man’s plight. There could be some salt, but you won’t find a chip, but you may see something to make your heart skip!


Mannum River Cruise

Experience the magic of the Murray!


Is there anything better on a sunny day than cruising? Enjoying the dynamic river views of the Murray from the comfort of an air-conditioned vessel? Following lunch in Mannum over-looking the Murray, we join Chad and his friendly crew to see the changing river landscape on our 90 minute cruise. Get close to the banks of the Murray and see the river birds up close as they come to the bow of the boat for feeding! Afternoon tea is also provided as we cruise.


The Cedars

Home of artist Hans Heysen


The Cedars was purchased by the Heysen family in 1912. The colonial style villa, built in the 1870s did undergo some renovations and updates, but it has changed very little since the early 1920s. The rooms are filled with the furniture, textiles, objects and personal items belonging to the Heysen family and we have the privilege of visiting this beautiful property and enjoying a guided tour. Our visit includes Hans Heysen’s studio (Australia’s oldest artist studio) with some 200 original works of art that can be enjoyed in changing displays around the property.


March Mystery Tour

Unlock the clues to our Autumn Surprise!


Hop aboard as we journey to a place filled with a fascinating past. Once the start (or end) of something that was the first of its kind – not just in Australia, but in the British Empire! The location of our venue may insinuate it is home to something similar…but different! However, both tend to go hand in hand! There’s hints of royalty, romance, and Australian icons and no doubt something that will spark a memory or two. Join us to unlock the clues to this mysterious day out!
