The delightful town of Laura is nestled into the eastern slopes of the southern Flinders Ranges on the Main North Road. Situated on the banks of the southerly flowing Rocky River amidst stately red gums, Laura is a perfect base from which to visit the many surrounding attractions and scenic drives.

Australian poet and writer CJ Dennis of The Sentimental Bloke fame, is a much respected early identity of Laura. His father was the licensee of the Beetaloo Reservoir Hotel from 1892 to 1910 and Clarrie Dennis spent much of his youth in Laura.

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.
