At Wallaroo Smelters Accommodation, you will enjoy the fully renovated homestead tastefully furnished and decorated in keeping with the class and history of the building. The five available bedrooms range from spacious to huge. The gardens and grounds are extensive, with ample parking at the rear which provides for larger vehicles.

Wallaroo Smelters Accommodation occupies a grand historic building on the Wallaroo Foreshore. Built in 1861, it was originally the office for the smelting works, which at the time was nearby. Hughes Chimney stack remains as a reminder of the past, across Heritage Drive, easily viewed from the public park and covered BBQ area. The Smelters expansive house also provided accommodation for employees of the smelting works and for many years as a seafarers centre for the crews of ships that docked at Wallaroo jetty.

Wallaroo enjoys great fishing, boating and sailing, as well as having fabulous beaches and a rich heritage from settlement in the mid 1800s when mining, smelting and shipping put South Australia on the global map.
