The Mid-North is a most beautiful region of SA as it magically transforms from the incredible wine, wheat, barley, livestock and copper district at the northern end of the Mount Lofty Ranges to the gateway of the outback at the Southern Flinders Ranges. Australia’s first (and largest) copper towns were founded in the Mid-North after those tendering to livestock found vast areas of mineral outcrops in the region. Following livestock and mining came vineyards and crops. The west of the Mid-North is bordered by Spencer Gulf, an extremely healthy seafood haven.
Historic towns aplenty lie within this district (Kapunda, Burra, Clare, Peterborough, Jamestown, Peterborough, Pt Pirie, Pt Augusta, Melrose, Laura and Pt Germein are just a few of many) and each and every one of them steeped in history. A wonderful region to visit and 4 days minimum is recommended.

Prior to European settlement, Ngadjuri people occupied the area, together with Kaurna in the south and Nukunu along the eastern coast of Spencer Gulf. European recognition of the area dates back to 1838–39 with the naming of the Hutt River after William Hutt of the South Australian Association by William Hill; in 1839 Edward John Eyre named the Broughton River for the first Church of England bishop of Australia. The area through which these rivers and their tributaries flow around Clare forms the approximate geographic centre of the region.
