Auburn is a small town in the southern edge of the Clare Valley, in the Mid North of South Australia. It lies in the northern Mount Lofty Ranges just east of the Skilly Hills. Auburn is bisected by the Wakefield River as it makes its way to the sea at Port Wakefield.

Auburn has always been a centre for transport in the region. In the 1850s it was on the Gulf Road, used by bullock teamsters carting copper ore from Burra, through Mintaro, to Hoyles Plains and on to Port Wakefield. Today it is on the Horrocks Highway, connecting Adelaide to the north, and also connects the Riverland district with Yorke Peninsula.

Auburn has many charming historical buildings and is a popular tourist destination, with a number of local winery cellar doors and B&Bs. Auburn is serviced by a pub and several cafes, a gallery, roadhouse, bike hire and internet cafe, a post office, hairdresser, Primary School, CFS station, and a number of other services. The Auburn oval hosts sporting facilities for cricket, bowls and netball and is also the location of a small, self-contained caravan park.

Visitors to Auburn can enjoy walking or cycling along an old railway line that has been developed for tourism and named the "Riesling Trail". The Riesling Trail travels past many cellar doors and other visitor attractions, making it ideal for those wanting a leisurely activity with some things to do. There are three loop trails, which allow you to return to your starting point without travelling over old ground. Car parking is available in Clare, Sevenhill, Watervale and Auburn.
