Melrose Accommodation, Hotels, Tours & Information

Melrose

Melrose is a charming reminder of early South Australia, nestled at the foot of Mount Remarkable National Park. The towns serves a rural community and at the same time offers pleasant holiday retreat. Many of Melrose's features are within walking distance. Climb to the War Memorial for a panoramic view over the Willochra Plain, or to Lookout Hill near the water tanks. Cathedral Rock is a spectacular formation along the edge of Mount Remarkable Creek, west of the town. Walk through the fascinating Melrose Courthouse Heritage Centre which brings to life the early days of miners, timber workers, pioneering women and farm workers. This innovative museum has possibly one of the best depictions of the early history of the upper and far north of South Australia. Stop for a drink and a bite to eat at the fabulous North Star Inn. It also offers accommodation. More accommodation can be found in the town, including holiday units and a caravan park. Melrose, the oldest town in the Flinders Ranges, came into existence because of a copper deposit found in the area in 1840s. However, today, situated safely within the assured rainfall area, grazing, wheat and barley growing are the main activities.
