Gawd, thought it was a little place in WA worth a visit.

Didnt realise it was across the other side of the country.

Will be pushing to get there and back this

The photograph of the old courthouse and police lockup is several years old, and much has been done to renovate the old buildings. The courthouse houses a great collection of local information on the gold diggings and families that settled in the area. The old police station building is now a visitors centre and during the tourist season, is manned by volunteers who travel from many parts of Australia, usually staying for a couple of weeks, providing necessary upkeep and offering weary travellers a cup of tea and a chat about the local area.

Camping is allowed on the town common, adjacent to the courthouse, and a short walk to the friendly Albert Hotel and Phyll and Darren.

The common has very good toilet facilities, and showers can be had at a small cost at the hotel.

Nearby is the Mount Brown gold diggings and historic sites associated with Charles Sturt's 1840's search for the 'inland sea'.

I recommend an overnight stay to take in the history and the friendly company of Milparinka. In May of 2007, a small group of travellers and volunteers, including my wife and I, spent a week in Milparinka when the Evelyn Creek flooded and all roads in the area closed after a day of heavy rain. We had a great time.
