Tourists have been known to travel for miles for a bite of bush baking at the Quandong Cafe in Copley.

Here, you can join the twice-weekly mail run to nearby stations and Aboriginal communities at Nepabunna dn Iga Warte. Or see the Mount of Light copper mine and Copley’s historic two-storey Leigh Creek Hotel.

To the east of Copley, the road leads to Arkaroola Wilderness Sanctuary and the rugged Gammon Ranges National Park. Nineteen kilometres north are the Leigh Creek coalfields. Continuing north, the road goes on to Lyndhurst – gateway to the Outback desert parks run by National Parks and Wildlife South Australia.

Originally named Leigh Creek after a nearby pastoral holding, it was surveyed in 1891 and officially named Copley after William Copley, Commissioner of Crown lands. The Great Northern Railway made its way to the town in 1881.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
