The Bublacowie Military museum is a privately owned museum located inland, half way between Stansbury and Hardwicke Bay. The museum was built on the grounds of the former Bublacowie Single Classroom School, which is now the owner’s private residence. The museum was curated by Chris and his wife Enid (deceased) to perpetuate memories of the sacrifices made by so many in all conflicts, and to help our young learn of our military history.
Set in two acres of native trees and scrubs in the midst of the rich wheat and barley growing area of Yorke Peninsula, the museum has ample space for camping, including dormitory-style bunks and sites for vans and tents. The museum includes a considerable display of local school and farming history in separate exhibits which include photographs of the Bublacowie School, local families, and farming communities. It also has a souvenir and craft shop, cold drinks, and tea and coffee facilities are available in the function centre dining room.
Annual Events include ANZAC Day, Long Tan Day and Remembrance Day – public are very welcome. Admission $10 Adults, children under 12 years $5 – School groups, gold coin donation.
