Looking forward to coming over once more to visit my great, great grandfather’s bond store , that magnificent stone building built in 1860’s . When I was there with my late sister Lorna James and her late husband maybe 35 years ago I dreamed of buying the building. From your web site you are doing a fantastic job.
Hi guys when are you opened next as we’re having family here over xmas cheers jay
A new attraction for the Yorke Peninsula – Bond Store Wallaroo
An exciting, new Microbrewery, Distillery and Restaurant; Bond Store Wallaroo, held its Grand Opening on the 19th December. The date coincides with the 5-year anniversary of when Derek and Nicole Matthewman first purchased the building at 13 Owen Terrace, Wallaroo. Since that time, they have fully transformed and reinvigorated the iconic premises in the main street.
“It’s been a lot of hard work, but we really wanted to create something positive for the town,” Derek said. “People are just starting to appreciate how great Wallaroo is – we’ve always loved it here”
The towering, stainless-steel tanks of the microbrewery provide a stunning visual backdrop to the brewery bar and restaurant on the ground level, while the 500L copper still, named Ginger, is the centrepiece of the gin bar, downstairs in the cellar distillery.
Twelve taps in the brewery bar provide ample choice of beers, including five Bond Store brews with the remaining guest taps featuring local South Australian craft beers.
A vodka, coffee liqueur and three different gins are currently available to taste from the Distillery. The Quandong and Blood Orange Gin is the clear favourite with guests so far.
The Pink Gin, created by infusing the gin with fresh raspberries, is running a close second.
A modern industrial fit out provides a relaxed space designed to encourage interaction between guests. The vision of the Bond Store is all about sharing an experience with friends and family and bringing people closer together. “We want everyone to feel
welcome here,” Nicole said. “We have a great team of people working with us, they are all passionate about what we’ve created and love having a chat to our customers”
The Bond Store menu includes quality, local produce lovingly prepared with a number of dishes cooked on the custom-made parrilla charcoal grill. You can choose to share a selection of plates – tapas style, or if you wish, you can indulge in it all by yourself.
The Bond Store was originally built in 1865 by William Creaton Eland and was known as Elands Bonded Store. It stored barrels of wine, whisky and rum, amongst other goods.
So, in a way, the building has come full circle and been returned to its original roots.
Descendants of William Creaton Eland have been following the progress of the Bond Store with keen interest and traveled from NSW to attend the Grand Opening
Open 5 days a week: Wednesday, Thursday & Sunday 11am to 10pm and 11am to 11pm on Friday & Saturday.

Hi there, Do you have a menu available to view?
We will be in Wallaroo next week and I love planning ahead with my food 🙂
Hi Derick & Nicole , My niece and I met you at the opening of your magnificent Bond Store ( William Creaton Eland is our ancestor.) We came from N S W would not have missed that special day, and I do hope to come again. The reason for my e-mail is to ask the question why the Bond Store is not on the Wallaroo Heritage Trail? Let me explain I called at the tourist office and was given information sheets about the area, on Wallaroo Historic Town Drive sheet , put out by Copper Coast Information Centre no mention. I do think that building deserves to be there. I wish you both every success for The Bond Store. Thanking you Gwendoline Piazza nee Eland
Yes it should be on the heritage trail, but as per most volunteer run things it takes a while for things to get done.
We have an updated one, I should send to you so that you can send to the museum ( so it is not like us tooting our own horn).
