About the Historical walk
Experience a self-guided walk around Quorn to view the many heritage buildings.
The town of Quorn was established in 1878, when the Great Northern Railway reached the town. Farming had commenced in the area three years earlier.
In 1917, Quorn became the crossroads of any north–south (on the Central Australian Railway to Oodnadatta) or east–west travel in Australia, when the Trans-Australian Railway was completed between Port Augusta and Kalgoorlie. This made Quorn an important town, given that any person travelling east–west or north–south in Australia would need to pass through Quorn. As a result, many fine buildings were built as the town expanded.
