History - Napperby has a proud pastoral history extending back to the mid-1800s. Pastoralists used large areas of land for grazing. The township became a prosperous farming community with a school created in the old outstation’s shearers’ quarters.
The area also has a strong European history, complimenting that of neighbouring Port Pirie. Many Greek immigrants settled in Napperby after World War II and established market gardens. Napperby and Nelshaby even earned the title of ‘The Tomato Growing Place’ around Australia for this very reason
Attractions - Nelshaby Reserve and Reservoir is a hidden gem of the Southern Flinders Ranges. This reserve, located three kilometres north of Napperby, is simply spectacular after solid rainfall. The reservoir was once the source of domestic water for Port Pirie and is fed by underground springs and small creeks. The reserve comes alive with the beautiful bird songs of the parrot species and water birds that use the area as a habitat and breeding place.
