Attractive and historic township
Terowie is a small township (population 220) located 221 km north of Adelaide. It came into existence as part of the railway network which was built in South Australia in the late 19th century. Consequently it has a large number of interesting and significant historic houses and the surrounding area (particularly the 91.5 km Hallett-Terowie Circuit Tour) has a rich variety of historical sites as well as extensive fauna and flora.
Terowie has been designated an historic town because of its large number of untouched 19th century buildings. There are old hardware stores and blacksmith's shops in the main street which have all the charm of something from the 1880s.
