Lameroo, South Australia
Lameroo, proclaimed in 1884, is the main service centre for the surrounding farming area. However, it wasn’t until 1906 and the arrival of the railway that the town really took off.
Dolly’s Golden Rain Tree Crafts and Heritage is the place to gain an insight into the history of the town and surrounding area with a browse around the interesting displays in the museum. The craft shop, in the same complex, is a favourite spot too and visitors can browse for handmade gifts or sample a delicious Devonshire Tea. There is also a Visitor Information Centre in the building.
Today Lameroo welcomes visitors with lush lawned picnic areas and a children’s playground on the main street. At picturesque Lake Roberts, on the eastern approach to the town, there are alternative picnic areas and the newly opened and well appointed caravan park.
A short but interesting historical trail runs along the railway line behind the Council offices and playground and other longer walking trails start and finish at the craft shop and museum complex. Or take one of the 4 local heritage walks.
The local bakery, café and delis provide welcome refreshments for travellers.
There is an 18 hole golf course open to the public and, in summer, a dip in the local swimming pool is very refreshing.
Baan Hill picnic area is within a short drive of the town.
The Mallee District National Parks and Wildlife SA office is located in the centre of Lameroo’s main street and has information on the various conservation parks, camping grounds and walking trails in the area as well as the Border Track.
