Tallageira: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Wiese's Horse Dip - Part of Historic Drive


Wiese's horse dip was built in 1931 by local landholders using timber from nearby buloke trees. Its main function was to control a parasitic itch in working horses (Clydesdales).

Horses were walked into the dip and, due to the horses' size; the operators bucketed and sponged the solution over the horses to complete the task.

Now part of the Bordertown, Cannawigra, Mundulla Historic Drive, five kilometres south of Bordertown.

Refer to the Tatiara Visitor Guide for more details.

Tallageira: Events

Frances Folk Gathering


Each year on the last weekend in February, the tiny village of Frances (on the Victorian/South Australian border, about 50 kilometres south of Bordertown) opens its doors and its hearts to hold the Frances Folk Gathering - a huge collection of musicians, dancers, artists, buskers and just plain ordinary folk for a weekend of music, fun and laughter.

Most folk set up camp or park a caravan at the local oval for accommodation. Amenities there are basic but comfortable (toilets and showers, but no power) so come prepared to be reasonably self-sufficient. There are food stalls at the France Folk Gathering, and there is an excellent restaurant at the local hotel.

The Frances Folk Gathering is about being in the festival, not just at it - there are plenty of opportunities to join in, whether it's as a performer, busker, a workshop, a competition, or just taking in the energy.

Serviceton Railway Station Special Investigation


Join Twisted History for a special Serviceton Railway Station Paranormal Investigation.

Possibly Australia's most haunted railway station. No longer used, this time capsule is a reminder to the time of great Victorian steam travel.

Built on what was believed at the time to be the border of Victoria and South Australia, you won't believe what is hidden inside. Both states had different rail gauges so passengers had to disembark go though customs before boarding a new train.

Rarely investigated this largest building is a labyrinth of rooms over three levels. From a dining hall, ballroom, accommodations, hotel, morgue and police cells where convicts were chained to the wall.

Do you have what it takes to explore this location?

Twisted History recommends you stay in Kaniva, Victoria or Bordertown, South Australia.
