Bews Memorial is located in the park opposite the Museum and was erected in 1895 in memory of David Bews M.P., a local man who was responsible for bringing reticulated water to Wallaroo from the Beetaloo Reservoir in 1890. Prior to this, water was obtained from underground storage tanks or wells and was always in short supply during summer months.



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.
