For motorists who are looking for an alternative route into the Mid North region of the state, Mallala is the gateway for those travelling from Adelaide along Highway One once they have detoured via Two Wells.

Derived from the Aboriginal word madlola, meaning ‘place of the ground frog’ the town is central to a busy and diverse agricultural community. The Light and Gawler Rivers pass through the district and the rich fertile plains are ideal for vegetable production that is sent to the nearby Adelaide markets.

The centre of the town has an outstanding War Memorial. Mallala Motor Sport Park is just north of the township and was originally a training base for the Royal Australian Air Force.

The international standard equestrian centre, east of the township is the venue for national showjumping and related event competitions.

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.
