South Australia's Own Public Pleasure Resort
Brownhill Creek (known as Willawilla by the Kaurna people) is a watercourse which rises on the western slopes of the Mount Lofty Ranges in the Adelaide Hills, runs through the suburb of Brown Hill Creek and beneath the historic Keystone Bridge in Mitcham.
While proclaimed as a public pleasure resort in 1914, the area is rich in South Australian history with 150 years of Mitcham's history hidden along Brownhill Creek Road and in the public reserve. Over the years, the area has been host to pioneer births and deaths, mines, market gardens, heritage listed manure pits and bluestone and sandstone quarries.
As part of the South Australia History Festival, the City of Mitcham is inviting you to take a guided walk along Brownhill Creek and discover the natural beauty of the area. Tread along the paths taken over a century ago by quarrymen, farmers and families who lived, played and loved in this stunning location. Hear the significance of George Prince's seven pines.
This free 90-minute walking tour will be held on Wednesday 9 May and Wednesday 23 May 2018, commencing from the Mitcham Reserve car park off Evans Avenue, Mitcham at 10.30 am.
