What are some towns in South Australia

BURRA

BURRA
Population: 2,225 Copper was discovered around Burra in 1845, and soon a bustling town had grown around the site. The Burra, as it was known, consisted of a series of small townships based around the nationalities of the miners who lived there. Kooringa and Redruth were Cornish, Aberdeen- Scottish, Llywchwr-Welsh and Hampton- English. While the town economy is today based on the pastoral industry especially merino sheep farming, the copper heritage is evident everywhere. Several museums interpret the old mines site, and numerous historic residential and public buildings have been restored and put to contemporary use. Burra's Passport system is an inviting and novel way to see the town's many attractions - simply collect your key from the Burra Tourist Office, and head off at your own pace on an eleven kilometre tour of heritage buildings, museums, mine shafts and lookouts .

KINGSTON

KINGSTON
Population: 1,367
Kingston is in lobster country, as you quickly realise on entering the town when you are met by a giant welcoming lobster.
It was settled in the early 1850s and named after Sir George Strickland Kingston, an early deputy surveyor general and father of premier Charles Cameron Kingston.
The coast around Kingston has plenty of scenic drives, especially on the way to Cape Jaffa and also towards the Granites, a series of rock outcrops north of the town and also at Jip Jip Conservation Park, fifty kilometres north.
There are plenty of safe swimming spots around Kingston, including Wyomi and Pinks beaches and Lacepede Bay.

Population

The Outback
SOUTH AUSTRALIA
The outback contains 80% of the states area and less than 0.75% of its population. Whichever way you travel Port Augusta at the tip of the Spencer Gulf is the largest concentration of people you will see until Alice Springs or Roxby Downs.

Port Pirie

Port Pirie [pir'E]

Port Pirie , city (1991 pop. 14,110), South Australia, S Australia, on an inlet of Spencer Gulf. It is a railroad center and has uranium refineries and smelting works for the silver-lead mines at Broken Hill. Silver-lead ore and refined lead are exported.

TAILEM BEND

TAILEM BEND
Population: 1 600 One of the most famous railway towns takes its name from an Aboriginal word describing the spot where the broad river waters take a sharp turn towards Lake Alexandrina. Watersports and fishing have long been popular with locals and visitors. Many make use of the barbecue grounds and adventure park in the Rotary Park where an old railway engine sits.

PINNAROO

PINNAROO
Population: 1.350 This is the gateway to South Australia from Victoria and NSW providing visitors and the rural community with rest havens, recreation and supplies. Native birds, emus and kangaroos are housed in a modern enclosure next to the caravan park. Barbeque and Picnic amenities are available at the Soldiers' Memorial Park. A number of conservation parks are easily reached from the town.

MILLICENT

MILLICENT
Population: 5,075
Millicent lies inland and is a convenient base from which to explore the coastal towns of Beachport, Robe and Southend. It began life as a rural centre, but earlier this century, large plantations of trees were planted in the district to take advantage of the favourable climate and rainfall for forestry. Today Millicent is a busy commercial centre for the forest industry. There are several paper mills and sawmills in the area.

BLINMAN

BLINMAN
At the northern end of the Flinders Ranges National Park, Blinman was a thriving copper town between 1862 and 1830. Robert Blinman's discovery of the metal in 1859 built up high hopes for the future of the town that bears his name.
Some old mine machinery, early buildings and an historic cemetery remain as a reminder of the town's history.

Kelly Hill Conservation Park

Kelly Hill Conservation Park
6.306 hectares Stunted coastal heath and hardy mallee thrive in this park, a large section of undulating limestone ridges on the western edge of the island before Flinders Chase National Park. Walking trails wind through the park to the coast and to the historic village of Grassdale, while at Kelly Hill, an extensive area of caves, caverns and sinkholes is the park's most popular attraction .

BALAKLAVA

BALAKLAVA
Population: 1,365
Balaklava, named after the battle in the Crimean War, was established by Adelaide grain merchant Charles Fisher in 1870 when he built large grain stores as an inducement to farmers to open up the land. The town services a rich pastoral area today.

PORT MACDONNELL

PORT MACDONNELL
Population: 651 The southern-most sea port in the state, Port MacDonnell is the base for a large lobster fishing fleet. It began life as a busy outport early last century. The arrival of the railway ended its importance as a port. The coast around Port MacDonnell is spectacular and rugged, with plenty of opportunities for scenic drives and bushwalking. Take the scenic drive to Cape Northumberland lighthouse for rewarding views of rocky coastline.
