Welcome to Bordertown

Welcome to Bordertown - the gateway to the State's eastern border. Situated on the Dukes Highway, Bordertown is 280km from Adelaide and 450km from Melbourne. 

The town was established in 1852 adjacent to the Tatiara Creek and was the site of a base camp created by Police Inspector Alexander Tolmer who was in charge of the gold escorts from the Victorian Goldfields to Adelaide. These historic escorts saved the infant state of South Australia from bankruptcy. Their importance is recognised by the granite stone markers and plaques along the gold route.
