Peterborough developed as a ‘Railway Town’, and with the closure of the railway’s workshops the emphasis has changed to being a service town for the surrounding pastoral industry or smaller communities; tourism is also increasing in importance.
The town is about 3 hours travel from Adelaide and 1.5 hours from Port Pirie and Port Augusta.
Peterborough has facilities such as supermarket, hospital/doctor, post office, bank, Rural Transaction Centre, retail shops, hotels/motels, petrol stations, public and Catholic primary schools, high school, churches and visiting services.
