Kanyaka Homestead

It was a thriving grazing property established in 1852 by Hugh Proby, and ultimately employed 70 families. Proby unfortunately drowned in the same year at only 24, but the property continued under new owners until poor seasons overcame the operation and it was abandoned in 1888. These ruins stand, preserved.

Parachilna Creek

You can’t visit South Australia’s Flinders Ranges without seeing Parachilna Creek. The road runs alongside and several times crosses the creek-bed. These two Eucalyptus Camaldulensis (River Red Gums), must be many centuries old, and have withstood countless raging floods and scorching summers.

Quorn Railway Station

Quorn was once a thriving terminal on South Australia’s narrow-gauge railway system. You can still ride on steam or old diesel-hauled trains and even tour the Pichi Rich Railway Preservation Society’s workshops. The railway station is the Quorn headquarters of the volunteer-run railway.
