Tarlee - Places to See

Historic Buildings

To the traveller there are a number of interesting historic buildings which are all located around the junction of the roads from Burra and Kapunda. It is here that the old Tarlee Hotel (known as the Sir James Ferguson Hotel) still stands. Nearby is the Tarlee Institute which seems to have been built to stand for a thousand years. And next door is the gracious Roman Catholic Church of St John and St Paul. Over the road, behind the war memorial, is Elizabeth Henry House.

The Old Creamery
At first you look at the building and think that it is a modern roadhouse which has been designed to look vaguely Shakespearian. In fact this roadhouse (it serves petrol and general supplies) dates from the 1860s when it was built as the town's creamery.
