Snowtown  South Australia

A prosperous centre in a region noted for its high quality wheat and fat lambs, Snowtown, 148km north of Adelaide, owes its name not to the weather but to the whim of a State Governor. When he proclaimed the town in 1878, Sir Thomas Jervois promptly named the town as a gesture of gratitude to his aide de camp, Thomas Snow.

The town's major thoroughfare, Fourth Street, hosts several standout public buildings, including the handsome Snowtown Memorial, which was added to the Old Institute in 1919, and St Canice's Catholic Church.

The salt lakes just outside the town, which once formed part of the upper reaches of Gulf St Vincent, and the Fauna and Wetlands Park are the outstanding features of the local landscape.

The locals, in fact, claim they can predict the weather from the colour of the lakes: blue in fine weather, the lakes are said to take on a pinkish hue when bad weather is on the horizon. The road linking Lochiel and Ninnes to the south provides stunning views of inland lakes and the countryside.
