Town based attractions in Ceduna

Ceduna Arts & Cultural Centre

Experience local authentic Aboriginal art, craft and artefacts. The Ceduna Arts and Culture Centre is Aboriginal- owned and sells artwork on behalf of all artists involved. All profits from the centre go back into buying materials and developing new skills to ensure the continued running and upkeep of the centre.

The artwork is very different to other areas, of high quality and well worth a look.

Ceduna National Trust Museum

The museum is located in Park Tce and is opened Monday to Saturday. Built in 1912, this was the first school in Ceduna and was opened in 1981 as a museum. On display are historic items from pioneering families, antiques and restored farm machinery.

Features are the Maralinga Room with artefacts from the 1950s Maralinga era and the British Atomic Program, and the Medical room dedicated to the Bush Church Aid Society. Make sure you see the cast of a basking shark found at Fowlers Bay in 1914.

Check opening times at the Visitor Information Centre.
