Penwortham and surrounds

Penwortham sits within a picturesque valley. It was home to the earliest settler, John Horrocks, who continued exploring the region by camel. He and his party were exploring north of Port Augusta when Horrocks stopped to shoot a bird. While reloading his gun, his camel lurched and set off the gun, shooting him through the hand and mouth. Horrocks died three days after his return to Penwortham. You can visit his grave at the secluded St Marks Church.

Attractions include:
– Cellar Doors
– St Marks Church
– Riesling Trail (Cycling / Walking Trail)
