Port Elliot - South Australia - 2015 Legendairy Capital Finalist

Port Elliot keen for LEGENDAIRY Capital title

With a long history of dairy farming, Port Elliot is home to more living legends than anywhere else, they say. The town is the destination of choice for retired dairy farmers, many of whom were descendants of or became pioneers of the dairy industry.

Port Elliot prides itself on encouraging all members of the community to be involved in the town’s activities and initiatives. The annual Port Elliot Agricultural Show connects individuals from across the town and allows anyone to learn more about life on the farm.

The community grant from the LEGENDAIRY Capital program will contribute towards the development of a permanent dairy exhibit in the town’s Southern Fleurieu Historical Museum, showcasing a milking display, milk room, laboratory, cheese room and much more.
