Nantawarra SA


Postcode: 5550

Nantawarra is a locality in the postal area of the town of Bowmans in South Australia’s Mid North. The township is located just east of Highway 1 approximately 125km north of Adelaide.

Nantawarra is recognisable from a distance for its imposing grain silos which, like the township, are strategically located just east of the Adelaide – Port Augusta railway line.

The name Nantawarra may derive from the word nantuwara (meaning a northern yerta, or group) in Kaurna, the language of the indigenous people who once lived there.
