Open Days & Events


Tours are also conducted by our enthusiastic volunteers. Having all worked at the mill when it was operational, some for many years, our volunteer tour guides are very knowledgeable. Why not visit us and find out how a Dobcross Loom worked, the role the Mill played in WWII and why the iconic Onkaparinga Mill closed down. Spend some time immersed in local history. We may even be able to tell you the name of the pattern on that old Onkaparinga blanket in your cupboard at home!

How To Find Us

Building 26 is situated in the Old Mill complex at the Southern end of Lobethal at the junction of Woodside Road, Adelaide Road and the Main Street of Lobethal. Building 26 is on the Southern side of the Adelaide Road.

There are two entries through large mesh gates.

The furthermost one is signed when the collection is open. Follow the alleyway to the rear of the complex. We are the furthermost shed on the right and parking is adjacent.

Entry is by gold coin donation and is appreciated as this helps towards the outgoings of the Museum.
