Glenthorne National Park

On the 17th June, 2020, The Minister, Mr. David Speirs, updated the SA Parliament on the plans for Glenthorne National Park. This is recorded on Hansard. See the transcription here.

The demolition of CSIRO buildings continues. Only the shearing shed, workshop shed (both will be kept) and Physiology Lab, which is the next to go. The big concrete tank at the southern end and the rubbish dump have all gone.

DEW have started working on the interpretive signs for the GNP which should be ready when the loop trail opens in the next month or so.

Glenthorne History Book

Glenthorne, a Defining History & Indefinite Politics

Did you know that some very early buildings, in SA's history, exist at Glenthorne.  There are plans afoot to have these buildings restored to their former glory (or humble use!)  These plans are part of our visioin for Glenthorne,

You can learn about the history of these buildings (and others that no longer exist) in our book, “Glenthorne, a Defining History & Indefinite Politics” written by Dr. Pam Smith, Dr. Keryn Walsh, and Mr. Alan Burns.  More information on getting your own copy on the Friends of Glenthorne web site here.  Or you may like to telephone Pam on 0428 315 266 on how to get one.

At just $40 ($30 plus $10 postage and handling), it makes a great gift and is a great read. It is the most detailed written history of the Glenthorne property and we are very proud of it.  If you come to our Enjoyment Day to pay for and pick up your copy, you can save the $10 postage.

Payment can be by way of cheque (posted in the mail) or electronic or cash deposit into the Friends bank account. Note that order forms must also be forwarded with payment to ensure your copy is accurately posted to you.
