Orroroo  South Australia

    •   Show me: a map of Orroroo

Graced by broad, tree-lined streets, faithfully restored 1870s buildings and shop fronts set against the backdrop of the Southern Flinders Ranges, Orroroo is a delightful heritage town.

Orroroo’s 1879 early settler’s home is a superb example of the traditional pug-and-pine pioneer cottage, while the 1888 Memorial Hall has a story or two to tell. So, too, does the Yesteryear Costume Gallery, whose parade of fashion dates from the 1830s - a collection, curiously for a town decidedly closer to desert than surf, which includes an engaging array of women's swimming costumes.

The Pekina Creek recreational reserve picnic area opens on to a bush trail which leads visitors past Aboriginal carvings, natural springs, fossilised algae and an 1896 poem carved in rock.

At a point just off Wilmington Road, the creek flanks the state’s largest river red gum which has a 10m girth. Visitors can pick over the ruins of the first station homestead in the region, Pekina, after a short drive south of town and, on the way, they can stop for an overview of the district from the Tank Lookout.
