Blinman

Blinman Progress Association Inc. Community Affairs Resourcing and Management Agreement Financial Year 2016-17

Established in the 1860s around the State’s third working copper mine after Kapunda and Burra, Blinman had a population of 1500 people in 1869. Sitting as it does on the central spine of the Flinders Ranges, the township of North Blinman has the little-known distinction of being the most elevated surveyed government town in South Australia.

Although with a much reduced population the townships of Blinman North and South have retained their identity and have for some time served as a tourist centre for the Flinders Ranges with good road access from either side of the Ranges and from Wilpena to the south. The current residential population is about 25 but this swells considerably during the winter tourist season.
