Map of Hawker, SA 5434

Often referred to as the 'Hub of the Flinders'‚ Hawker's position at the junction of the roads from Orroroo‚ Port Augusta‚ Leigh Creek‚ Marree and Wilpena makes the town an ideal base from which to explore the stunning scenery of the ranges and surrounding areas.

Proclaimed in 1880‚ Hawker's early history is that of a thriving railway town servicing an area originally planted with wheat. Lack of rain‚ however‚ forced farmers off the land and the town's role changed in the mid-1950’s when the railway line was moved further west. To counter this‚ Hawker took advantage of its position and became more tourist-oriented‚ offering accommodation and services for people visiting the Flinders Ranges. A must-see whilst in Hawker is the Wilpena Panorama at the Jeff Morgan Gallery‚ a hand-painted 360 degree 'endless' view of the surrounding ranges and countryside.
