So much to explore in historic Goyder


What do Midnight Oil, Colin Thiele and the world’s largest copper mine have in common? The picturesque Goyder region.

The sun still shines on the stubble around Eudunda, the birthplace of Colin Thiele.

The cottage on Cobb and Co Corner continues to be one of the most photographed ruins in Australia (Midnight Oil fans might recognise it), and one of Australia’s most daring explorers, Sir Hubert Wilkins, hailed from Mt Bryan East.

The State Heritage town of Burra is home to the Monster Mine, the legacy of the 19th-century copper boom.

Nowadays, with a thriving food culture, boutique shops and quality accommodation, Burra makes a brilliant base in the heart of the Goyder region.
