Orroroo is the next town visited when heading eastwards to Broken Hill. Orroroo is a small community but is clearly a heritage minded. Orroroo is an old town with quite a number of century old buildings.
The Wilmington-Ucolta Road passes through here, intersecting there with the southern stretch of the Birdsville and Oodnadatta Tracks. The narrow gauge rail line was extended to Orroroo also in 1881 and Quorn in 1882, connecting with the new line from Port Augusta. This line has now been abandoned.
A local curiosity is nearby called "Magnetic Hill", which is a gravity hill.
Goyder's Line passes near here too.
This is a nice place and be considered as a stop over destination.
