Details (Known As) Mayura Homestead (Homestead, Early Kitchen & entrance avenue of pines)
Registered Name Mayura Homestead - Homestead, Early Kitchen and Entrance Avenue of Pines
Significance 'Mayura' is significant in its connection with the early European settlement of the South-East of South Australia, notably with George Glen and Samuel Davenport. The main house, designed by English and Brown, Architects and Builders, was a gracious homestead in a remote area and provided accommodation for visiting Governors, judges on circuit and other officials. The building materials and workmen arrived from Adelaide by sea, were off-loaded at Grey Town (Southend) on Rivoli Bay and transported to the hill-side site. Millicent Glen's new home 'Mayura' was a genteel oasis in the South-East in the late 1850s and 1860s and has remained as a symbol of the early pastoralist endeavours in the area.

While due care has been taken to ensure that the SA Heritage Places Database accurately reflects the South Australian Heritage Register and listings of Local Heritage Places in Development Plans, the State of South Australia does not accept liability for the use of the SA Heritage Database for any purpose. Users should consult the Department for Environment and Water - Heritage South Australia to confirm the listing of State Heritage Places and the relevant Development Plan for Local Heritage Places/Contributory Items.

In the majority of cases, the maps of State Heritage Places on this web site show the footprints of the most significant structures on a registered Place. However, sometimes they simply indicate the complete area of land comprising the Place. Work is proceeding to further refine the mapping of such places. It is also important to note that development control is not limited to the registered structures but extends to their setting and structures nearby (what is termed ‘development affecting’ a State Heritage Place). Hence it is vital that exact details of the listed place and implications for any proposed development be discussed with Heritage South Australia staff, as they cannot be deduced solely from the information on this web site. The inclusion of a place in the SA Heritage Register gives no right of public access. Permission to visit properties must be sought from the owners. The accuracy of the mapping of State Heritage Places is not guaranteed. Please contact Heritage SA ( https://www.environment.sa.gov.au/topics/heritage/sa-heritage-register) if you believe there is an error.
