Stories from Our Heritage
Marble Hill was the summer retreat of the governors of South Australia for 75 years until gutted by bushfire on Black Sunday, 2nd January 1955. It remained a ruin for 60 years. Learn more about this historic landmark at the June Talks with Patricia Michell, on June 5, 2019.

A huge restoration project has been undertaken to restore this historic property to its former glory. Currently, the Stables/Barn precinct on the western side of the property has park-like grounds and magnificent views over the city, creating a unique venue for Events, Open Days, Banquets and Weddings.

Restoration of the Ruin commenced in 2015, with lock-up due mid-2019. The Women of Walkerville Foundation will present an eclectic line up of speakers for their upcoming June talks on the restoration project. They will share their passions and stories and by the end, you'll be inspired to see the world from a different point of view.
