Jamestown  South Australia

    •   Show me: a map of Jamestown

Surveyed in 1871 to service the productive and reliable farmland of the Northern Highlands, Jamestown is 209km north of Adelaide. Although grain and legumes are highly profitable crops, wool has long been the dominant product in these parts and Jamestown’s monthly sheep sales are the largest in rural South Australia.

The town’s development is colourfully portrayed on a series of shopside murals while the National Trust Museum - housed in the old station - features early railway equipment and artefacts.

A standout is nearby Bundaleer Forest. The world’s first plantation, it was planted in 1876 and stands as a living testimony to the versatility of radiata pine. Historical and botanic walking trails of between 1.5 and 4.6km snake through the forest.

Jamestown hosts South Australia's largest, one-day Agricultural Show on the Monday of the Ocxtober long weekend.

The dominant name on street signs and foundation stones is Cockburn and the labelling pays due homage to Sir John Cockburn, Jameston's local doctor who was the town's first mayor and first and only South Australian Premier.
