Flinders Ranges and Outback Visitor Guide : 2017 Flinders Ranges and Outback Visitor Guide
58 Peterborough was a hero of the 20th century – a hissing, steaming hub of mighty locomotives sitting at the crossroads of a growing nation. Today, the spring skies are china blue, the kids no longer have to wipe the clothes-lines clean of soot and the only whistles are from birds among the wildflowers. But Peterborough is still the geographic heart of Australia and visitors still arrive from four corners – although they're usually hauling caravans rather than freight! Matching a passion for the past with a zest for today, the people of Peterborough welcome you with one of the nation's finest heritage experiences, Steamtown*. You'll also find historic collections, artistic creativity, superb locally-sourced food, love of country and fondness for a good yarn. So do yourself a favour and do us the honour. Stay an extra day! *Steamtown Rail Museum open 9am to 5pm 7 days a week. Bookings essential for the nightly Sound and Light Show on 08 8651 3355. Low season conditions apply.
