Company Well

From 1849 to 1857 a large number of bullock and mule teams travelled the Gulf Road between Burra and Port Wakefield, carting copper ore from the Burra copper works to the port, returning with coal and other requirements.

Here, on the Hoyles Plains, the Copper Company owned a section of land where there was a well of good water. 

This section was a watering and resting place for the teams travelling the Gulf Road.

This plaque commemorates the Jubilee 150 Re-Enactment of the Gulf Road traffic.

Unveiled by W. F. Gregor, 26 October 1986.
