We had just one night at North Burraneer on the way from Sydney to the Flinders Ranges. We knew it would be good, but it was outstanding. This is a very grand homestead from days when spreads were huge (300,000 acres before South Australia passed its Closer Settlement Act in 1910) and, in times of high wool prices, extremely lucrative. All of this fell into disuse in the twentieth century and nearly into ruin like so many other buildings in northern South Australia. It was rescued about a decade ago by its present owners, Marianne and Malcolm Booth. They restored it meticulously to its former glory and now offer very superior accommodation with dinner and breakfast. North Burraneer is a bit too remote for weekends from Adelaide, but it is a wonderful stop on a journey like ours. The Booths welcomed us like old friends and made us thoroughly comfortable. Dinner (with our hosts) was most congenial and of a very high standard. As a nice touch for us animal lovers, as dinner ended they brought in Jacinta, their pet western grey kangaroo joey, rescued from her dead mother's pouch. This was a pricey night, but thoroughly memorable and highly recommended.
