You’ve heard of Jamestown, perhaps driven through town along RM Williams Way and recalled that this is the outback legend’s birthplace. Maybe you’ve passed the tall timber of Bundaleer Forest, or been to the arts & music festival held there.
Yes, you’ve heard of Jamestown, but there’s so much more to know; enough to fill a weekend, or a lifetime – come and see for yourself.
Make our home your home whilst visiting the Southern Flinders Ranges. We have everything you need to unwind, refuel and prepare for the next stage of your journey.
Visit during the October long weekend and you’ll be treated to a glorious annual picnic race meeting, the Jamestown Show, and Mural Festival painters in action.
Come anytime and immerse yourself in what the locals take for granted: peaceful picnic spots along the grassy banks of Belalie Creek, scenic sections of the Heysen and Mawson trails, beautiful forest walks, intriguing sculptures and artworks, and a thriving shopping precinct.
If you’re just passing through, top up food supplies at our supermarkets, bakery, and two butchers selling local meats. Lunch at a gourmet café or bakery, grab a bite at the takeaway (free WiFi), or dine in our historic hotels.
Enjoy friendly service at our boutiques and stores featuring everything from gifts and clothing to camping gear and hardware. Fuel outlets and our large supermarket are open 7 days a week.
Stay longer and explore a little more of what our town has to offer.
Visit interpretive centres sharing the stories of locally-born bush outfitter RM Williams and polar explorer Sir Hubert Wilkins. See the fully restored rare WWI Krupp cannon, and take in Australia’s largest pressed glass collection or the vintage sewing machine display.
Base yourself in Jamestown to take in some of what our amazing region has to offer. Head north to the Flinders, south to the Clare Valley.
Jamestown has accommodation for all tastes and budgets, from the RV friendly Robinson Park to luxury B&B at North Bundaleer.
Jamestown’s services are the envy of many city folk. Within the town find 3 banks (2 with ATMs), post office, newsagent, 24/7 taxi service, library (with free internet access), a public swimming pool (open in summer), hydrotherapy pool, a world-class sports stadium, a well-equipped gym, hospital, medical centre, pharmacy, dentist, as well as a comprehensive range of professional and agribusiness services.
