Mintaro, SA

Rich in history and heritage buildings, the entire town of Mintaro was declared a State Heritage Area in 1984.


Its cultural significance is enhanced by its picturesque setting among wheat fields and vineyards surrounded by a broad band of hills.

The best way to see this unique village is on foot. Wander past old stone churches, an 1850 country pub called the Magpie & Stump, a grand manor house, a converted granary and stables. You can browse for antiques, meander through a nursery and cottage garden and hedge maze, or enjoy wines from two boutique wineries and delicious local fare from a choice of several eateries.

Martindale Hall to the south east of the town is a magnificent Georgian-style mansion built in 1879 by Edmund Bowman for his aristocratic English bride-to be who jilted him, so the legend goes.
