Millicent Things to Do
THE LIVING HISTORY MUSEUM
We saw this Museum, but decided to give it a miss, as we had already visited several that were similar.
From the brochure I picked up, I believe it has the LARGEST FULLY RESTORED HORSE & BUGGY COLLECTION IN S.A.
The Museum is in the old school house and other buildings. Displays are of Aboriginal artefacts, and there is a shipwreck room featuring information and artefacts of the wrecks on the nearby coast, including the Geltwood and Admella. There is an interactive display on how the land was drained and made useful for growing crops. Other sights at the Museum are a T class locomotive, a fully-operating water wheel, farm machinery and a blacksmith's shop.
Entry is through the Millicent Visitor Information Centre.

The Millicent 125th Main Street Committee commissioned murals to be painted at the northern and southern entrances to George Street.
On Watts Corner, George Street, Millicent, is a historic pictorial of the bridge area in Millicent in the 1890's.
Palmers, George Street, depicts the era when this building served as a garage and features a sedan, ute and petrol pumps of the 50's era.
There is also a mural on the front of the Millicent Living History Museum and on the toilet block adjacent to the Millicent Visitor Information Centre.Related to:

SAINT ALPHONSUS CATHOLIC CHURCH
As we drove along George street, Millicent, there wasn't a real lot to see until we came upon Saint Alphonsus Catholic Church. This Church is huge and different because it has a whole wall and more covered in stain glass windows from floor to ceiling, it really must look magnificent when inside and with the sun shining on these windows.
Once again, doors shut and locked, so no inside look for me!Related to:
