Information

Terowie is 20km south of Peterborough. It became an important part of the northern railway network in the 1880s, and a supply town for the vast grazing country to the north-east and to the Broken Hill/Silverton mining communities of that era.The fortunes of the town revolved around the railway systems and it became obvious that with the demise of the railways in 1970 that Terowie was destined to be yet another "ghost town". However the Terowie Citizens Association had other ideas and purchased six of its historically important buildings and have taken great care in a program to preserve and restore the buildings and retain their authenticity. The town was designated an historic town in 1985 (one of only 7 in South Australia) and offers the visitor a wealth of heritage.
