Map of Quorn, SA 5433

Nestled into a valley in the southern Flinders Ranges‚ the old railway town of Quorn is an important gateway to the ranges and a fascinating destination in its own right.

Quorn was surveyed in 1878‚ when the discovery of rich mineral deposits in the ranges necessitated the building of a service centre. A year later‚ the narrow-gauge railway from Port Augusta to the north was opened and Quorn became a railway town. Its decline as a railway town began with the opening of the new standard gauge line to Marree in 1956. Today‚ the old narrow-gauge railway is used by the Pichi Richi Railway‚ a heritage group that runs various trains between Quorn and Port Augusta. Train services include the Afghan Express and the one-hundred-year-old Coffeepot‚ as well as Dinner Trains in December.
