Details (Known As) Ketchowla Woolshed, Old Homestead & Outbuildings to Old Homestead
Registered Name Woolshed, Old Homestead and Outbuildings 'Ketchowla'
Significance The original part of the Ketchowla homestead is one of the earliest surviving buildings to be erected in the Hallett area and was erected by pioneer pastoralist Giles in the 1850s. Subsequent additions to the homestead were all completed within decades of its establishment, therefore today, the surviving homestead provides a valuable record of 19th century domestic development. The woolshed is a unique stone construction of c1870. The design and layout of the double shed, and the survival of many of the timber furnishings provide a significant record of an important pastoral structure.

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.
