Pinnaroo, the gateway to Golden Mallee from Victoria and New South Wales

Pinnaroo is the gateway to South Australia from Victoria and New South Wales on the Mallee Highway or from Tailem Bend off Highway 8, and is also on the shortest route from Adelaide to Sydney / Canberra and the snowfields.

Pinnaroo is a major centre for the surrounding wheat, barley, sheep and mixed farming area. It was first settled in 1869, although it did not become really populated until the early 1900s. Although the area is a traditional rural centre, the natural underground water supply is diversifying the land use with market gardening of potatoes and onions.

Pinnaroo Mallee Heritage MuseumThe Pinnaroo township has good shopping and service facilities, swimming pool and other recreation amenities such as golf, law tennis, bowls and croquet plus various sports held at the school gymnasium. The Mallee Tourist and Heritage Centre provides information on local attractions and the centre has excellent displays relating to the history of the district. The displays include Farm Machinery, Cereal Grain Collection, Farm and Household Memorabilia, Letterpress Printing Machinery including working displays.

Pinnaroo is a good base from which to explore the interesting conservation parts in the area. Some 15 kilometres south of Pinnaroo and adjoining the Ngarkat Conservation Park is the Scorpion Springs Conservation Park. It is a natural soakage which is a haven for the native animals and birds, and alive with native shrubs in the spring time. The Karte Conservation Park is 30kms north-west of Pinnaroo on the Karte Road. The Park contains a 1.5 km Walking Trail where native flora and fauna may be viewed. The Peebinga Conservation Park is 30 kilometres north-west of Pinnaroo on the Loxton Road.
