The Ardrossan Heritage Museum (National Trust of South Australia, Ardrossan Branch) is housed in the former powerhouse building of the Clarence H Smith factory. The factory began manufacturing the iconic Stump Jump Plough and other tillage machinery in 1880. The plough revolutionized the task of reducing the despised mallee scrub, thus opening up Australia's mallee country for agriculture. The museum features this famous plough, historic plans of its various forms, as well as photographs, models and other memorabilia, Displayed over 5 rooms, the Museum depicts the lives of our early settlers, our reliance on the sea and the history of the town from its inception in 1873.

The Museum is open 7 days a week from 10am til 4pm. Closed Christmas Day and Good Friday only.

The Yorke Peninsula is the traditional lands of the Narungga (Nharangga) people, who have lived on, and cared for, this country since the beginning of time. We work, live and travel on Nharannga Banggara [Country], and we take time away from those pursuits to acknowledge and pay our deep respects to the Nharangga Elders of the past and present. 

Today, it is essential that we continue to care for and protect our spectacular natural environment. Tread lightly and leave no trace. Learn more about responsible and respectful travel on Yorke Peninsula.
