A great opportunity to learn more of the Boer War and the Memorial, "many people believed at the time it would be all over in a few weeks, but it became a stalemate and lasted into a period of almost three years".
The life size 3.4m high bronze statue of the mounted bushman was both carved and cast in England before being shipped to Adelaide.

Please come and enjoy Beaumont House and meet the members of the Burnside Branch of the National Trust, who hasve been so willing to host the joint meetings.

The summers of 2018 - 19 have proven torrid and vexatious for gardeners everywhere in South Australia.
