Parham is a coastal town that historically was a thriving port that saw shipments of Adelaide Plains produce sent to Port Adelaide and cargo and passengers arriving. Popular with holidaymakers, Parham is also a regular destination for day trips to the beach for fishing and crabbing. Local schools and churches used to hold their sports days and picnics on the beach, while the Australian Defence Force still has close ties with it. Through displays, talks and child-friendly activities, the Dublin History Group members will share with you Parham’s interesting past and present, including the intriguing vehicles called ‘Jinkers’.
