Take a short walk around the historic Wilkadene property and you’ll soon learn why this pastoral land was so important in the development of South Australia and the Riverland.
Built in 1859 of locally quarried limestone, the old cottage on the property at Wilkadene was the head station of the old Murtho run. It was run by Edward Meade (Ned) Bagot, the owner of the great Ned’s Corner Station who made his fortune bringing cattle down to Adelaide. Wilkadene has seen tragedy, fortunes and changes of ownership over the years and truly reflects the pioneering spirit of Australia’s Murray River. We hope you enjoy the local walk around our unique and interesting property and enjoy an great ale in the brewery.
