Sedan is encounted when traveling between Swan Reach and the Barossa Valley group of towns. Sedan is a crossroads town that qualifies for a Bustout Synopsis. Sedan has an interesting history that is on display within the pub and a set of display boards at the crossroads. If traveling this road take the time to have a look. The reason Sedan is the name of the town is revealed.

Sedan is a very small rural town about 20 kilometres west of the Murray River.. It is located on the dry eastern side of the Mount Lofty Ranges. Sedan also used to be the terminus of a branch of the SA Railways which has been closed for many years.

Surrounded by dry-stone walls built by early settlers, the historic town of Sedan is home to many 19th century buildings that are in excellent condition.

The Sedan Heritage Trail - available from the Sedan Hotel - is a good way to discover the town. Once a busy railway town, complete with steam flour mill and agricultural machinery factory, Sedan was settled in the 1850s by German settlers.

The Sedan War Memorial is located at the mid-point of the Five Ways intersection.

The Lutheran Church is quite a striking building that towers over the town and landscape.

The Sedan Hotel is the central meeting point and the catalyst for much fun and celebration.

The traveler will not have to allow much time but a visit to the pub is essential to discover the reason for the name.  Get the timing right for the refreshment of choice.
