Part of the Yorke Peninsula’s famous, 19th century copper triangle, Wallaroo is a major shipping port through which large tonnage's of regionally grown barley and wheat are moved. Safe beaches and good fishing from jetty or boat have given the town a tourism string to its development bow. The National Trust Wallaroo Heritage and Nautical Museum not only gives the visitor an insight into the region’s social, industrial and maritime history, but provides brochures to guide newcomers on historical walks. The town’s standout old buildings include the railway station, the customs house and the Hughes chimney stack, which covers more than 7sqm at its base and contains more than 300,000 bricks. Wallaroo, which, curiously, takes its name from the Aboriginal word for ‘wallaby’s urine,’ is the final resting place of Caroline Carleton, who wrote the words to the Song of Australia. She is buried in the local cemetery.
