Due to the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) throughout Australia and the resulting restrictions imposed by the Federal and State governments, Glencoe Woolshed has been temporarily closed until further notice. We will keep you up to date any developments and please stay safe.
The small township of Glencoe lies just 30 minutes from Mount Gambier. In 1903, the station of Glencoe was further divided for the purpose of closer settlements and this made the town grow around the Woolshed, which the National Trust has restored to its original splendour.
The Glencoe Woolshed was built in 1863 as a thirty-six stand shearing shed for brothers Edward and Robert Leake. The brothers bought Saxon merino sheep to South Australia and had plans of shearing the sheep in this shearing shed.
