Located 13 kilometres east of Bordertown, Wolseley and its surrounding area are considered by many to be some of the best grain growing country in Australia with high yielding cereal crops, legumes and canola.
Wolseley was once a bustling railway town where the Adelaide to Melbourne broad gauge line met the Mount Gambier narrow gauge line. All the freight had to be transferred from one train to the other across the platform.
It’s well worth travelling to the western edge of town to see the World War II Fuel Storage Tanks. These tanks were constructed by the RAAF during World War II and camouflaged to look like farm buildings.
