Blinman is a town deep in the Flinders Ranges in the Far North of South Australia. It is very small but has the claim of being the highest surveyed town in South Australia. It serves as a base for large acre pastoralists and tourism. The town is just north of the Flinders Ranges National Park, is 60 kilometres(km) north of Wilpena Pound and 485 km north of Adelaide.
Tourists travel to this area to enjoy the Outback of South Australia and to see the ancient geology of the area. The town is close to Brachina Gorge and Parachilna Gorge. These two rarely have flowing water in them. Also nearby are the Blinman Pools. The town is a stop off on the way to Arkaroola. The copper mine at one end of the town is another attraction.
The town itself boasts a pub, general store, fuel, a church and a cafe/gallery. There are tennis courts, a golf course and a cricket pitch, though they see sporadic use.
The two most popular events in the town are a Land Rover jamboree held over the Easter long weekend and Cook Out Back. Notice that both events are held during the Australian winter because of the searing heat during summer.
