Original and quaint with lots of the original banks features including the safe. It's clean and comfortable, perfect for a few nights, it does lack a full kitchen but is perfectly OK for making snacks. Quorn itself is quiet but has all the facilities you need, a good base for a trip to the outback.

Management response:

Dear Tim, we appreciate your feedback and glad that you enjoyed your stay at the Sacings Bank of South Australia - Old Quorn Branch

What a delight! Absolutely loved this gorgeous former bank building. We were two couples, so each had a bedroom with queen-sized bed, massive bathroom and lounge. We were upstairs, so also scored the balcony! There is another bedroom upstairs with single beds. The kitchen is small and without an oven, but there is a convection microwave, kettle, toaster and slow...

What a very pleasant surprise this historic bank was and what a great idea to re-cycle this attractive building into a holiday let. There were only four of us this time but the spacious 2-story building can accommodate a much larger group. We flew from Sydney then drove up from Adelaide and parked our car right in front then went...

About the neighbourhood
Quorn was surveyed by Godfrey Walsh and proclaimed a town on 16 May 1878. The township covered an area of 1.72 km2 (0.66 sq mi) and was laid out in squares in a manner similar to the state's capital city, Adelaide. Governor Jervois reputedly bestowed the name 'Quorn' because his private secretary at the time had come from the Parish of Quorndon in the UK.

Quorn was established as a station on the Port Augusta and Government Gums Railway, which eventually extended to Alice Springs. The principal workshops for the railway were located in Quorn, and Quorn was the major railway crossroads for trains passing east to west and north to south in Australia, prior to construction of the Port Pirie to Pt Augusta railway in 1937.

Quorn has many attractive and historic buildings and hous...
