Address 179-181(rear) Melbourne Street NORTH ADELAIDE
Accuracy H - high level confidence
Development Plan ADELAIDE Council
Polygon Type B - Building footprint
Details (Known As) Office (former Malt House of Old Lion Brewery)
Registered Name Factory - Malting House
Significance Built in 1872 to be part of the Lion Brewery and Malthouse that was established by Messrs Bailey and Stanley in 1871, the malthouse was designed by Daniel Garlick, who also designed similar surviving brewery buildings in Clare. The complex represents the development of the brewing industry in Adelaide and this malt house is now a rare item in the city. Another example is in Wyatt Street (registered place 11635). Although industrial buildings in a residential area, the size and scale of the complex on the corner of Jerningham and Melbourne Streets is an important aesthetic contribution to both streetscapes.

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.
