Melrose Mountain Biking
Bike Elysium! Trails out of the town in the foothills of Mount Remarkable! There are some trails already famous like Greener Pastures and Hellrose with EDGE LOOP and Throwing Copper new connections for some. Riding mountain bikes on Don and Margaret McCallum’s property is a privilege, so please treat the trail, livestock and environment with respect and care. Enjoy with a hint of adrenalin and a tincture of rosemary followed with a deep red Shiraz. Watch out for the roos, they are numerous and have been know to hitch a ride..
Melrose Trail Cycling Track
Melrose, at the base of Mount Remarkable, lays claim to being the oldest town in the Flinders Ranges, tracing its origins back to 1853.
The railway line started in Gladstone, opened 2nd June 1884, and continued through rural towns including Laura, Stone Hut, Wirrabara, Yandiah, Booleroo Centre, Perroomba, Melrose, Terka and Wilmington. From Melrose, the line turned slightly from west towards north, crossed the Main North Road then the Willochra Creek heading towards Wilmington.
