Recently restored, the Milang Lakeside Butter Factory is now open for the public to admire its hallowed halls and historic exhibits. Thousands of volunteer hours have been dedicated to the restoration work over the past ten years. It was a true labour of love and that passion can clearly be seen in the finished project.



The factory played an important part in the region's dairy industry. It was established as a barrel-roofed stone building in 1893 by Buckland and Lipson, and later reopened by Murphy Fromen & Co. in 1915. The latest equipment was installed. By the 1920s, corrugated iron outbuildings have been added. It was then owned by the South Australian Farmers Union.





This historical landmark continues to stand today along Daranda Terrace overlooking Lake Alexandrina. New life has been breathed into it though. The churning of butter and other dairy products has been replaced with the hosting of community events, art exhibitions and educational programs. For example, on Sunday the 23rd of June 2024, the hub will come alive with music by The Sherrahs and Jessie Che. An exhibition by Helen Stacey and Kathleen Cain is also currently on display.



For more information, head to milangbutterfactory.org.au or follow their Facebook page . Milang is situated approximately 75 kilometres southeast of Adelaide. The drive will take just over an hour via Mount Barker and Strathalbyn.
