Quorn, in the heart of the Flinders Ranges, has been the backdrop for many Australian films, including Sunday Too Far Away, The Shiralee, Gallipoli, and The Water Diviner.
Travelling through the scenic Pichi Richi Pass from Port Augusta, following the Old Ghan line, you’ll wind your way through towering walls of ripple stone and fossilised mud cracks. Explore the tracks and trails of Quorn, the ‘unexplored Flinders’, by foot, bike, train, 2WD or 4WD.
The Pichi Richi Explorer runs alternate weekends out of Quorn for half-day tours from March to November, with additional services on long weekends and school holidays. The Afghan Express runs full-day adventures from Port Augusta to Quorn return, on alternate weekends.
Stretch your legs in Powell Gardens and visit the Quorn Native Flora Reserve for an outlook over Quorn. Dutchmans Stern Conservation Park, Warren Gorge, Mount Brown, Waukarie Creek and Devil’s Peak walking trails offer interest for bushwalkers, geologists and nature lovers.
History lovers will enjoy the Quorn Pioneer Machinery Park and the Quorn Heritage Walk, which takes you around the township to learn about the historic buildings and sites.
Foodies will enjoy the chance to take in the tastes of the Bush Food Trail.
