Glenthorne Open Day - Commemorating the Centenary of World War 1

 Date: 3 May – 100 years and eight days after the Gallipoli landing.

Time: There are two sessions: 10.00am and 12.30pm. Numbers are limited and bookings are essential. See to book (click on bookings and 3 May on the calendar).

The Open day is being held in conjunction with History SA’s About Time History Festival. 

Did you know that Glenthorne was owned by the Australian Army for the twenty five years spanning the two world wars?

During this period Glenthorne was the No. 9 Remount Depot and the men stationed at Glenthorne broke, rode and trained horses for the cavalry, the Light Horse brigade and for transporting military supplies including artillery

Approximately 17,000 horses were shipped overseas from South Australia and the majority came from the No. 9 Remount Depot.

Historic photographs, newspaper articles will be on display; join a walking tour of Glenthorne’s historic sites and listen to an illustrated talk about the No. 9 Remount Depot.
