Wallaroo Township

Many buildings within the township of Wallaroo are Heritage listed. These buildings, mainly constructed of locally hewn stone and brick, reflect the ingenuity and craftmanship of the building trade at the time.

All of Wallaroo historical buildings are part of the Wallaroo Historical Walk, which takes around 1 to 1.5 hours to complete. You can pick up your free Wallaroo Historical Walk guide from the office of The Mac’s Beachfront Villas.
