Birthplace of Labor’s longest-serving Prime Minister, Bob Hawke, Bordertown was once an overnight haven for the armed guards escorting the booty on the gold run from Victoria’s Mt Alexander diggings to the banks of Adelaide.

The sleepy little town 275 km south-east of Adelaide is now the commercial centre for surrounding wool, cereal, beef and vegetable producers.

The link with the town’s most famous son is preserved in a living museum in the restored Farquhar Street home in which Robert James Lee Hawke spent his childhood, while the chambers of the Tatiara District Council are adorned with a portrait of the former PM.

The Bordertown Wildlife Park is a sanctuary for a variety of native birds and animals, including some rare white kangaroos.

The Heritage-listed Clayton Farm, which is distinguished by thatch-roofed buildings, now houses the record, relics and memorabilia collected over the years by the Bordertown District Museum. The museum is open every afternoon apart from Good Friday and Christmas Day.
