Crystal Brook is a town in the Mid North of South Australia. It was named after the spring-fed creek next to which it was founded. The area was founded in 1839 by Edward John Eyre who was passing through the region. He named it after the beautiful sparkling clear water and named it 'Chrystal Brook'. Crystal Brook is 197 kilometres (122 mi) north of Adelaide and in the 2016 census had a population of 1,515. The town has had some growth over the past year or two with more proposed job opportunities in the region.
Crystal Brook is situated on Goyder's Line near the border of two climate systems. The township of Crystal Brook is surrounded by an intense farming region. As the town has experienced some growth in the past few years it has pushed housing development to the eastern side of the original township and across the creek.
The town benefits from a temperate mediterranean climate zone,making possible slightly more intense farming in the region. To the south to south-east and west lies more intense farming and to the north-west lies some marginal, semi-arid farmland.
It is home to nearby Bowman Park, a nature preserve that is situated in the Crystal Brook Valley and has an abundance of wildlife and shady camping spots right next to the Crystal Brook Creek. The park contains history that dated back to the 1800s. The original homestead that belonged to the Bowman Brothers, which the park was named after, is there overlooking the Crystal Brook.
