Location description from owner

The South Australia region

The Flinders Ranges in South Australia is an ancient and unique mountain range which extends about 430 Km (270 miles) from Port Pirie to Mount Hopeless in the north of the state. The most characteristic landmark is Wilpena Pound, a large sickle-shaped natural amphitheatre coving nearly 80 square Km (31 square miles). The ranges are about 540 million years old and contain fossils demonstrating some of the oldest fossil evidence of animal life.

Wilpena Pound contains the range's highest peak, St Mary Peak (1,170 m (3,840 ft)) and adjoins the Flinders Ranges National Park. The northern ranges host the Arkaroola wilderness sanctuary and the Vulkathunha-Gammon Ranges National Park. The southern part of the ranges are notable for the Pichi Richi scenic railway in Quorn and Mount Remarkable National Park.

The Arkaroola Wilderness Sanctuary is a scenic protected area. The Dutchman's Stern Conservation Park, west of Quorn and the Mount Brown Conservation Park, south of Quorn, are protected areas of the ranges together with the Mount Remarkable National Park in the southern part of the ranges near Melrose. The Heysen Trail and Mawson Trail run for several hundred kilometres along the ranges providing scenic long distance routes for walkers, cyclists and horse-riders.

The Flinders Ranges are largely composed of folded and faulted sediments of the Adelaide Geosyncline, originally deposited on the margin of the ancient continent of Rodinia. About 540 million years ago, these layers were folded and faulted into a large mountain range. Since this time the area has undergone erosion and the ranges are lower today than when originally formed.

There are many flora species adapted to the semi-arid environment, and unique marsupials and birdlife.

Quorn

Quorn was surveyed by Godfrey Walsh and proclaimed a town on 16 May 1878. The township covered an area of 1.72 km2 (0.66 sq mi) and was laid out in squares in a manner similar to the state's capital city, Adelaide. Governor Jervois reputedly bestowed the name 'Quorn' because his private secretary at the time had come from the Parish of Quorndon in the UK.

Quorn was established as a station on the Port Augusta and Government Gums Railway, which eventually extended to Alice Springs. The principal workshops for the railway were located in Quorn, and Quorn was the major railway crossroads for trains passing east to west and north to south in Australia, prior to construction of the Port Pirie to Pt Augusta railway in 1937.

Quorn has many attractive and historic buildings and houses and four hotels including the Transcontinental and the (former) Grand Junction Hotel whose names reflect the railway heritage of the town.

The Savings Bank of South Australia opened a branch in Quorn in 1906. The Bank became the Bank SA branch before closing in 2002.

The building has been renovated and is now available as comfortable holiday accommodation, centrally located at the gateway to the the Central and Northern Flinders Ranges, and within walking distance of four pubs, supermarket, bookshop, art galleries, craft shops, laundromat, post office, newsagent, butcher, chemist, Quorn Visitor Information Centre and the Pichi Richi Railway Station.

This beautifully presented former SBSA Branch with Managers Residence features 2 double bedrooms, 1 twin bedroom, 2 bathrooms, kitchenette and two large sitting rooms, with off-street parking. Ground floor rooms are air-conditioned. Electric barbeque available.

There are easy drives to Warren Gorge on a recently sealed road, and day trips to Brachina Gorge, Wilpena Pound, Blinman, Hawker, Cradock (renowned for sunsets, pub food and art), Hammond, Bruce, Melrose, Moockra Tower and Laura.

Wilpena Pound is a world class geological feature and park well worth a scenic flight available from many surrounding points.
