Wolseley, which was first proclaimed a town in 1884, is situated five kilometres south of the Adelaide to Melbourne highway and 13 kilometres east of Bordertown.
There is a unique stand of bulokes and over 80 native species of flora in the Wolseley Common Conservation Park on the southern edge of the town.
The Institute was built in 1928 and was the hub of the town's social activities and was well known for its good dance floor back in the time when balls and dances were popular. Now a private residence.
The silos and bunkers are located near the rail line. These storage facilities have a capacity of more than 100,000 tonnes of local grown grain prior to being transported to seaports.
The surrounding area is considered by many to be some of the best grain growing country in Australia with high yielding cereal crops, legumes and canola. Both gladiolus and lavender farms are nearby to visit by arrangement. Enquire at the Bordertown Visitor Information Centre.
Wolseley was once a bustling railway town. It was where the Adelaide to Melbourne broad guage line met the Mount Gambier narrow gauge line. All the freight had to be transferred from one train to the other across the platform.
The Wolseley Hotel was built in 1922.
Wolseley also has excellent sporting facilities and complex. Tennis and cricket club rooms are used as required and for private functions. Children can enjoy modern playground equipment close by.
It is only a short journey across the border to Serviceton where the historic Serviceton Railway Station can be visited.
