Milparinka Pioneer Women's Room


The Milparinka Pioneer Women’s Room is at the rear of the Courthouse and is a special place where visitors are able to read a series of short stories about some of amazing pioneer women and girls who braved the isolation and hostile environment of a newly settled part of the colony in the late 1880s and early 1900s.

The room is discreetly and sensitively arranged with artefacts representative of the era, some of which were owned by some of the featured women.

A portrait of a young woman and child, representing Matilda Wallace of Sturt’s Meadows Station, was painted by award-winning artist Jodi Daley
