    Join Carol Lefevre, author of 'Quiet City', on a stroll through West Terrace Cemetery's sea of sun-bleached headstones. Many reveal tragic tales of watery misadventure - drownings in the Torrens, capsizes off our coastline, and deaths in some of the State's most notorious shipwrecks.

    The objects displayed in our Museum are only the tip of the iceberg, much of the collection is kept in storage. Venture into our storage facility to peek into our drawers and scour our shelves. Learn about why and how we collect and discover the stories behind our 'store stars'. Join our curators to explore the collection and learn more about our history and the objects that remain. This is a rare opportunity to see behind the closed doors of a museum.

    Torrens Island Quarantine Station was built in 1879 to stop passengers bringing diseases such as small pox into Adelaide. Today, the site is remarkably intact and evokes the experiences of passengers placed in quarantine from the 1880s to the 1960s. The fully guided 90-minute tour visits the bathing blocks that separated first and second class passengers, the boiler house used to power fumigation, the morgue and the isolation hospital.
