Our tour takes us into South Australia’s Mid North area and we travel through a mixture of old abandoned small towns once vital water stops for the old Stream Trains and little farming communities.
We arrive at Burra around midday where we enjoy a Hearty Country Lunch at the Burra Hotel. Burra is a historic township which played an important role in South Australia’s history.

In 1845 Burra had a population of 10,000 people who lived and worked here due to the discovery of copper. After lunch we take an interesting town tour which includes a group of miners’ four roomed cottages which were built during the mining days to help with housing. The Red Ruth Jail was also built in Burra and was used in the filming of the Australian movie Breaker Morant.
Our tour continues to Peterborough which was one of the important towns in South Australia at the time. This was due to the unique turn table which allowed passengers to transfer to trains of different gauges which allowed them to continue to all corners of Australia.
