Tarlee
Tiny historic township on the main road from Adelaide to Burra.
Located on the Gilbert River 79 km from Adelaide, Tarlee is a tiny town at the beginning of the Gilbert Valley. It probably derived its name from the Aboriginal word for the local water hole although this has been the subject of much dispute. There is a body of opinion which says it was originally named 'Tralee' by Irish workers and another opinion claims it was from an Aboriginal word 'Tarralee'. It was a rural centre which came into existence in the 1860s as a stopover point for the early traffic moving to and from the Kapunda and Burra mines. Many of the town's most attractive historic buildings date from that period. It was around this time, in 1868, that a number of blocks of land in the town were sold with a prime block next to the railway station fetching £30.

Laura - Fast Facts

Laura
Pleasant small township where Australian poet, C. J. Dennis, spent his childhood
When the evening sun slants through the gums,
By my forest-rimmed abode
Once more the old clear picture comes,
And my mind drifts down the road;
Back to the town by Beetaloo,
Where the rocky river strays;
Back to the old kind friends I knew
In the dear dead Laura days.
