We finally arrived in Blinman for morning coffee & found the local pub had the best coffee ever! The town is very interesting as it used to be a thriving mining town with a population of 1500 but today there are only 22.
The town began with the discovery of copper in 1859 and commencement of mining in 1862. The Blinman Mine is today a popular visitor attraction & there are tours available at the mining tin shed. The 4WD’s lined up against the Blinman Hotel made a fabulous opportunity for a great shot of an Australian Outback scene.
After our little coffee break we head towards Parachilna for lunch but after seeing all the 4WD’s let’s hope not everyone has the same idea about lunch.
We didn't stay here as we used Rawnsley Park Station as our base for exploring the Flinders Ranges & they have amazing luxury villas if one wants to spoil themselves.
Blinman makes a perfect stop for lunch or coffee if heading to Parachilna.
