Saddleworth  South Australia

    •   Show me: a map of Saddleworth

Saddleworth, 105km north of Adelaide, is indebted to early pastoralist John Masters for its name. Masters, who settled in the area in the 1840s, named his property after his home town in Yorkshire.

Saddleworth straddles the North Road and is the commercial centre for a region which is still dependent on the pastoral industry although land owners to the north are turning increasingly to wine.

A doorknock through the town raised enough money to buy an old store and convert it into a museum which brings visitors up to pace on the regional history of Saddleworth and the nearby towns of Waterloo, Marrabel and Manoora.

Waterloo was once a staging point for Cobb & Co coaches and horses on the Adelaide-Burra run, while Marrabel which has been drawing rough riders from across the land to its annual rodeo since 1935. A larger-than-life statue of the notorious bronco from the 1950s, Curio, still trying to dump rider Allan Wood, guards the entrance to the rodeo arena.
