Melrose is a thriving town at the base of Mt Remarkable. Officially proclaimed in 1853, it is the 'oldest town in the Flinders Ranges'. This quiet and attractive town has had a colourful history characterised by farming on very marginal land and mining poor deposits of copper. Today it has a number of interesting historic buildings and there are pleasant bush walking tracks in the surrounding countryside.

It is also the town where a tree grows in the middle of the road (albeit a dirt country road) but its a very significant, ancient and magestic tree that is often photographed because of its uniqueness.

The town offers many excellent Mountain Bike Tracks, including the historic railway trail (Melrose - Wilmington Rail Trail) - see additional files for the brochure and mud map.
