If you are fortunate to be in Willunga when the courthouse museum is open, you are in for a treat. For starters, put your child in the prisoner box and hold a mock court session to see if they are 'guilty' or 'innocent'! Take them into the prisoners courtyard and lock them in a cell! The volunteers at the museum are so knowledgeable and if you have time to visit and chat, you will discover so much about this old township (one of the oldest in SA!). Researchers will love the books and references, including a display about the Star of Greece (shipwreck). The piece de resistance is the Slate Museum... which gives a really thorough explanation of slate as a building material in the early SA colony and the range of uses for this type of stone. The museum grounds are also delightful for weddings, or a picnic... or just stroll on down to one of the great cafes or pubs. Hang about... you can even join the volunteers for a cuppa, and stay in Willunga forever!!!!
Worth a stop driving into or our of willunga. Interesting history of the region. ..slate production.
