Mount Compass, SA

Mount Compass is the home of Australia’s only cow race!

This fun event, held every February, is a great way of celebrating the dairy heritage of the region.

Mount Compass is a rural hub surrounded by hills and a bounty of local produce including delicious red strawberries, cheese, pheasants and venison. Here, you can walk a wetland boardwalk, bird watch, play golf, fish for trout or pick your own seasonal fruit. There are alpaca, deer, assorted berries and protea farms to visit as well.

From Mount Compass follow the trail of fresh local produce through Nangkita, Tooperang, Yundi and Ashbourne.
