The Exchange Hotel welcomes all travellers with cool drinks and great meals and you are invited to add your mark to the humorous graffiti gallery.
South of Torrens Creek is Moorrinya National Park. Moorrinya, meaning “ironbark” in the local Aboriginal dialect, showcases a perfect example of the desert upland bioregion. Bush camping is available by contacting the ranger on (07) 4741 7374.

A bush camping area is available for self-sufficient and experienced bushwalkers only.
