Peterborough  South Australia

Along with sister Flinders Ranges town, Quorn, Peterborough shares the distinction of being one of the only two railheads in the world where three lines of different gauges once met. The days of the iron horse live on through the Steamtown Peterborough Railway Preservation Society which operates steam trains on the line which still connects Peterborough to Euralia.

The town is an increasingly popular stopover for tourists, most of whom find their way to the two unusual museums - Eric Rann’s, with its old engines and artefacts, and Ivan Ley’s collection of dolls and bottles. Saintly Sister Mary McKillop once taught at the convent school attached to St Cecilia’s.

There are pleasant picnic spots alongside Victoria Park lake and the lookout from Tank Hill presents magnificent views. Peterborough was a major terminal when the rail network was vital to the state's north and a restored train still runs special return services to the town and neighbouring Terowie from Burra.
