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...More

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...
