Melrose is in the Flinders Ranges region of South Australia.

Melrose is the oldest town in the Flinders Ranges and is in the shadow of Mount Remarkable, 270 kilometres from Adelaide.

Melrose, which was actually originally named Mount Remarkable has a current population of around 450 people.

Copper was discovered near Melrose and mining started in 1846, but it ceased in 1851 due to the cost of mining it. The Melrose mine was opened again three more times but the last time it closed was in 1917.

Today, Melrose is the base for visitors to the Mount Remarkable National Park and centre for the local farming community.

In 1848 Melrose was the headquarters of the largest Police district in the world, with part of the Melrose Police district reaching the Timor Sea.

Every June, Melrose hosts the Fat Tyre Festival, an off road bike celebration exploring local bike trails and crowding parades of freak bikes.

Pet friendly accommodation at Melrose consists of The Old Bank House B & B, whilst pet services include pet food outlets, vets, pet breeders, pet transport operators, Melrose horse riding opportunities, and pet friendly dining options can be found in Melrose.

Melrose residents would love you to use Melrose as your base when you explore the Flinders Ranges so why don't you pick up the phone or send an email and make a booking in Melrose for the very near future.
