Peterborough was a hero of the 20th century - a hissing, steaming hub of mighty locomotives that sat at the crossroads of a growing nation.
Today, the spring skies are china blue, the kids no longer have to wipe the clothes-lines clean of soot and the only whistles are from birds among the wildflowers. But Peterborough is still the geographic heart of Australia and visitors still arrive from four corners although theyre usually hauling caravans rather than freight!
There is a lot to see and do in the Peterborough area, not the least being the multi award winning Steamtown Light and Sound Show (click here for video). We heartily recommend that you stay an extra day and really get your teeth into this fantastic region, central to South Australia's rail history.
