The colourful Semaphore Carousel was built in by Len Northey in 1928 and moved to Semaphore around 1938.
The carousel is managed by the Rotary Club of Henley Beach to raise money for local and international charities. It is believed to be the largest operating carousel in Australia with 40 handcrafted wooden horses with most other rides like this only have 36 horses. As a seaside carnival attraction of yesteryear, the place is magical and a must for visitors, families and also a unique venue to hire for private parties and functions.
