Tarlee  South Australia

The gateway to the state’s mid-North region, Tarlee is the commercial and service centre for a mixed but predominantly wheat farming region. From the late 1860s, Tarlee has been a clearing centre for grain and a local buyer, Joseph Nock, set a record by stacking 65,000 bags of wheat. Modern methods of storing grain finally came to the town in 1963 when the first silo was built. An hour’s drive north of Adelaide, Tarlee was also a major marshalling transport point when the Kapunda and Burra copper mines were at their production peak and remains a strategic stopover for motorists travelling to and from the eastern states through Broken Hill. Most of Tarlee’s early buildings were constructed from the distinctive blue stone hewn from local quarries which also supplied the foundation stone for many of Adelaide’s major old buildings including the GPO, the Adelaide Museum, Legislative Council and railway station. Tarlee is within a short drive of the classic wine producing areas of the Barossa and the Clare Valley.
