Question:

What are the towns of South Australia?

GLENDAMBO

GLENDAMBO
Glendambo is a major service centre for travellers along the Stuart Highway between Woomera and Coober Pedy. It has a hotel-motel, roadhouse, general store, caravan park , camping area, and fuel outlet.

PORT GERMEIN

PORT GERMEIN
Population: 218
This once-busy wheat shipping port had the longest wooden jetty in the southern hemisphere, but storms in 1881 and several times this century damaged it. The jetty has since been repaired and anglers are now frequent users.

ANDAMOOKA

ANDAMOOKA
Population: 402
Andamooka is South Australia's youngest outback opal mining town. It is 120 kilometres north of Woomera, west of Lake Torrens and noted for the quality of its investments and heirloom quality opals. Andamooka was opened up with the discovery of opal in 1930. The main fields are close to the town, where semi dug-out homes are common. The historical cottages, now on the national heritage register were the first semi dug-out permanent homes of the early miners and opal buyers. Local tours can include inspections of working mines and the historical cottages.

PORT PIRIE

PORT PIRIE
Population: 15,114 This is the region's largest centre. It has always played a crucial role in the state's economy. Broken Hill silver, lead and zinc deposits have provided significant earnings for the city for generations, while grain from its hinterland has been shipped from the port for over a century. Contemporary Port Pirie has a rich cultural life, and its location near the Flinders Ranges makes it a good base for visitors intending to explore further afield.

QUORN

QUORN
Population: 1,073
Quorn, an old railway town was once an important junction for east- west and north-south rail traffic in the days of narrow gauge rail lines. The construction of a new standard gauge railway line from Port Augusta to Marree in 1956 bypassed Quorn and lessened its importance, but the re- opening of part of the Pichi Richi line has introduced tourism as a new industry.
Quorn is nestled in the beautiful finders Ranges and has lost none of its enchanting old world character.

WAIKERIE

WAIKERIE
Population: 4,724 Waikerie is the first major Riverland town encountered travelling the Sturt Highway from Adelaide. The first impression you get is of immense scale - more than 5,000 hectares of fruit orchards and vineyards are under cultivation in what was once desert country. The citrus centre of Australia, Waikerie has the largest citrus packing house in the country and a thriving fruit juice company. On the north side of the river you find important fossil deposits, one of the few places in Australia where crystallised gypsum fossils exist in great number.

WILPENA

WILPENA
Wilpena Pound is arguably the Flinders Ranges' single greatest natural asset, certainly its best-known. The Pound's upturned hand and gnarled fingers are a part of the Flinders Ranges National Park and offer the visitor magnificent scenery, bushwalking trails aplenty, Aboriginal and white history, abundant wildlife and dense native vegetation. There are no cars in the Pound and entry is through a narrow gorge above Sliding Rock while walking trails crisscross its floor, slopes and ridge-tops.
Out from Wilpena, there are numerous scenic drives to other natural features in the national park - including Sacred Canyon with its Aboriginal carvings, Stokes Hill Lookout, Aroona Valley, Brachina Gorge, Bunyerxo Valley, Wilkwillana Gorge and the Aboriginal carvings at Arkaroo Rock.

TANUNDA

TANUNDA
Population: 3800 Tanunda is the cultural heart of the Barossa. The most German of all the valley's towns, its name actually stems from the aboriginal word for "watering hole". The town at first centred on the hamlet of Langmeil, the Barossa's second earliest settlement. A short stroll through the town's back streets or around Langmeil's Goat Square quickly makes plain the importance of northern German culture and Lutheranism to the villagers. There are four Lutheran churches and many of the town's old buildings have been registered with the National Trust. For the traveller, Tanunda holds all manner of delights. Wineries surround the town. To compliment the wine, German pastries, breads and wursts can be bought at several shops, or enjoyed at the town's restaurants and tearooms.

PETERBOROUGH

PETERBOROUGH
Population: 2,239
Peterborough is a historic railway town and an important stop on the way to the Flinders Ranges, It is one of only two railway junction towns in the world where three railway line gauges meet.

PORT VICTORIA

PORT VICTORIA
Population: 250 This is the last of the windjammer ports. A jetty was built here in 1878 and with it came a thriving grain trade that kept the port busy until after World War II. Ketches and deep sea sailing ships called here during the harvest to take on the hundreds of thousands of bags of barley and wheat destined for European ports. The windjammers generally rode at anchor in the lee of Wardang Island and small coastal ketches ferried the grain out to them. Often it took four or five weeks, sometimes as long as eight weeks, to load the big ships for their long journey. The larger ones carried as many as 60,000 bags of grain.
The last square rigger to use the port was the Passat in 1949.

WILMINGTON

WILMINGTON
Population: 233
Wilmington's early settlers called it Beautiful Valley, and the name says it all. Located at the top of Horrocks Pass, close to stunning Alligator Gorge, the town shares its main attractions with nearby Melrose and Mount Remarkable National Park.
