South Australia’s historic Cummins House will be hosting a guided after-dark tour on Friday May 10, as part of South Australia’s History Festival.

Guests will have the opportunity to indulge in a delicious light supper and immerse themselves in the history of the house, as well as the history of the Morphett family who called it home for five generations.

Cummins House is located in Novar Gardens and was once the residence of South Australian pioneer and politician John Morphett.

The home was purpose-built for him and lived in by five generations of the Morphett family, until it was sold to the State Government in the 1970s.

It is an important State Heritage Place in the South Australian Heritage Register, with the house standing as a testament to SA’s colonial history.

Today, Cummins House serves as a popular tourist attraction and event venue, offering guided tours and hosting special events such as weddings, exhibitions, and cultural programs.

The guided after-dark tour is one of the many events a part of the South Australia’s History Festival that will run throughout May. The festival program is available online, or you can grab a copy from Drakes Supermarkets.

For any history buffs, visiting Cummins House provides a glimpse into the lifestyle of South Australia’s elite during the 19th century and offers visitors a chance to appreciate its architectural beauty and historical significance.

Tickets cost $20 per person with bookings essential, as there are only two session times of 7pm and 7:30pm on Friday May 10. For a chance to step back in time, purchase tickets here!
