The Roseworthy Campus of the University of Adelaide contains a treasure of agricultural tradition within the University - an agricultural museum.

It features a collection of agricultural artefacts with emphasis on the evolution of farming methods, as well as a focus on the Roseworthy Agricultural College and locally made machinery from the Gawler region.

The museum is operated by the Gawler Machinery Restorers Club, a group of dedicated volunteers who delight in running tractor engines - so in addition to a visual feast, you will hear the engines roar!

If you're heading to Roseworthy Campus to see the agricultural museum, pick up a Roseworthy Campus Walking Tour pamphlet and take a self-guided walk - you will be amazed.

The museum is open to the public 10.00am-4.00pm each Wednesday and the third Sunday of the month or by appointment. For more information call 0400 195 857.
