Mintaro in the Clare Valley
has many well-preserved colonial buildings, many built from the slate for which the town is famous. Its quarries once provided slate for many of the world's billiards tables. Take the heritage walk around the town for a glimpse into the town’s past. Just outside Mintaro is Martindale Hall, a magnificent Georgian-style mansion built by a local pastoralist for his bride who jilted him. You might recognise it from the film "Picnic at Hanging Rock".
