Deep in sheep territory in the state’s mid-north, Booborowie lies on the Barrier Highway, about halfway between Spalding and Burra.
Apart from stud merinos, the region also produces grain, canola, lucerne and clover seed. A one-hotel town, Boororowie is blessed with fine sporting facilities, including a swimming pool, while the one-stop store caters for grocery, hardware and postal needs.
A short drive north-west takes the traveller to Geralka Farm. This working farm, which runs more than 2000 sheep, gives the visitor the chance to see working Clydesdale horses and old machinery which helped break in the regional farming land.
A half hour's drive to the south-east takes you one of the icons on the South Australian heritage calendar, Burra. Burra's elevation in 1994 to State Heritage status backs the town's long established claims as 'an historic copper town' and the 'merino capital of the world'.
