Haddon Corner
Destinations

Have you been to Haddon Corner, South Australia?

Borders have been a bit controversial lately, haven’t they? Haddon Corner (1880), marks the north-eastern extension of the Queensland-South Australia border, and was important for the colonial government and pastoralists of the time. We thought you’d like to see this corner of Queensland and update… sent in by Shez Tedford. The turn off is off the Arrabury road. There is a green finger sign to Haddon Corner. It is a gravel road but in fairly good condition. This would depend on whether there has been any rain. If that is the case, this road along with all others in the

Edeowie Station in the Flinders Ranges, South Australia

Edeowie Station – image by Ross Plant by Guest Blogger Ross Plant Our evening in Peterborough was spent at the rest area just east of town. There are no facilities here and after yesterdays and last nights rain, the whole area is one big mud puddle. Peterborough in its heyday was an important link for trains carrying iron ore from Broken Hill to Port Pirie with about one hundred trains passing through daily. Just over an hour later we stopped in Orroroo. The main street has to be one of the widest street’s you will ever drive down. Several years
