On the way home from a recent trip to the outback and Flinders Ranges region of South Australia, we returned on the R M Williams Way, a major road in the mid north of the state, named in honour of Reginald Murray (R.M.) Williams. To most Australians this maker of iconic Australian bush clothing would need no introduction and this road bears his name because he was born in the town of Jamestown, which the route passes through.
The Mid North region of South Australia has particularly eye catching views in spring, mainly due to it being Canola season. Driving through the region your eyes are assaulted with the most brilliant colours and the whole area looks like it’s been draped in a patchwork quilt of the brightest greens, yellows and purples, thanks to the Salvation Jane growing. As you drive along there are plenty of old stone ruins, bridges and farm houses to see.
The mid north region of South Australia is a destination many travellers head to with the Clare Valley wine region and the historic mining town settlement of Burra being popular places to visit. If you’re looking for a less populated place to stay when visiting the region, then the town of Riverton could be just what you’re after. Riverton’s Caravan Park is small but very popular with those in the know and people who have stayed there before appreciating all it has to offer. It’s a popular park for clubs and groups to book because of it’s one stop facilities and convenience.
