Australia is a beautiful country with many places to explore in your own backyard.

Heart of the parks
Tintinara Visitor Centre

Tintinara is a small town approximately 188 kms southeast of Adelaide. Located along the Dukes Highway, it is known as the heart of the parks as 28 km west of the town is Mount Boothby Conservation Park and 28 km east of the town is the Ngarkat Conservation Park.

As you enter the town you will see a striking colourful building, the Visitor Information Centre. Originally the main Railway Station, the building has been painted with a mural that depicts the beef, sheep and wool industries of the region. On the grass area in front of the building are silhouettes of sheep, a shepherd with a sheepdog and a mallee fowl. There is also a big Comet windmill with a 40 foot tower.


The comet windmill

The Visitor Centre not only serves as an information centre but it sells local produce like homemade cakes, biscuits, cookies, jams and crafts. We bought some cookies and they were fresh and yummy. The Centre is open 7 days a week from 10am to 4pm.

The Lake

Not far from the Visitor Centre, off Woods Well Road is a beautiful artificial lake called Lake Indawarra. There is a Walking Trail that goes around the lake.

The Disc Golf Park

Beside the lake is an unusual Disc Golf Park where visitors can play Disc Golf by throwing discs into nine baskets. The friendly staff at the Visitor Centre will be happy to explain more about this.
Covered bbq area

There is a fairly new covered BBQ area with tables and benches in the park and on the shores of the lakes, there is plenty of grass areas for picnics.

Next time should you drive by Tintinara, do stop and see what this beautiful small town has to offer.

Hi Bev, I have never been to Tintinara but after reading your article I definitely intend to go and have a look around! It's interesting that's it's located between two parks, so it would be a good base for a weekend of exploring! Cheers. Bowen.
