Old Tailem Town offers an accurate portrayal of life in South Australian country towns (in 2020)

TRENT BARTLETT

South Australia’s favourite family attraction within an 80-minute drive, south-east of the city is (since Puzzle Park closed) Tailem Bend’s Old Tailem Town Pioneer Village.

Walk through the gates and you’re transported back in time to…basically anytime from the 1860s to several moments ago in country South Australia.

And did somebody say ‘dozens and dozens of mannequins’? Well, let’s hope so…

Old Tailem Town is a perfect re-creation of the idyllic South Australian country town, with a bakery, ironmonger and even a salvos hall. And in the pursuit of a real South Australian country town experience, every storefront looks abandoned, with very little signs of life throughout the town centre.

In the interest of authenticity, Old Tailem Town does not accept EFTPOS and does not have an operational bank. And did somebody say ‘dozens and dozens of mannequins’? Well, let’s hope so, because that’s what this slice of country South Australia has in store for you.

Yes sir, Old Tailem Town certainly is one of Tailem Bend’s attractions. Only Patterson Street in Whyalla is likely to rival this pioneer village in its representation of clinging on to its long-since forgotten glory and former relevance.

Bring a sandwich and sunscreen.
