Beltana - Cities, Towns and Localities

There is a story about that once upon a time the Elders Pastoral Company planned to secede and form a separate state of Beltania within the colony of Australia. Beltana was to be the capital.

The town guards its secrets, but reputedly is home to two Goths who’ve built a Druid sacred circle there.

by Luigi Mole

Just over 500 km north of Adelaide is the historic settlement of Beltana, located in the western fringe of the Flinders Ranges. Declared a State Heritage Area in 1987, Beltana historic importance lay in its links with the Overland Telegraph, the Transcontinental Railway and the Australian Inland Mission. Once a support centre for mining and other outback services, it also served as an important hub for camel-based transport during the 19th century.

With the slow growth of Leigh Creek just to the north, in the 1940s and 1950s, saw the demise of Beltana. Today, visitors travelling in the region come to explore the existing buildings and ruins that dot the area.
