Only 150 metres to walk to the Pichi Richi railway station and even less to galleries, cafes and historic pubs.

Comfortable, spacious heritage accommodation right in the heart of historic Quorn. 3 large double bedrooms, gracious lounge. Reverse Cycle air-conditioning. New kitchen, microwave, electric oven, gas BBQ, outdoor entertaining area, secure yard and undercover parking. Modern laundry.


Quorn really is the heart of the Flinders with unique scenery and wildlife and fantastic bush walks such as Devil's peak, Dutchman's Stern, Warren Gorge, Waukarie falls and Mount Brown only 15 minutes away by car. Further afield the world famous Wilpena Pound is less than a 75 minutes drive from Quorn to the north through Hawker. To the south the magnificent Alligator Gorge is reached via Wilmington in less than 45 minutes.

If Quorn is at the heart of the Flinders, McKinley's Rest can claim to be the high quality family accommodation in the heart of Quorn. It is so close [a very short stroll] to all the major features railway station, pubs, galleries and cafes and yet it is quiet and secluded.


McKinley's Rest was built in around 1880 and was part of Quorn's famous Foster's retailing empire.[The historic Emporium supplied everything from farm machinery to glassware and haberdashery and closed in 2001].The house was fully renovated and upgraded in 2007 and is very comfortably and tastefully decorated with quality furnishings for home away from home accommodation. It is environmentally friendly, utilising it's own plentiful rainwater and has great insulation and reverse cycle air-conditioning, making it very comfortable in summer or winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Immaculately presented period home The home was beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. The bedrooms are particularly beautifully decorated - the room off the lounge has a very comfortable king size bed with quality linen and electric blankets (which were very much needed as it was a very cold night). One minor issue was the airconditioning in the lounge room - we just couldn't get it to work (it turned on, but didn't actually warm the room at all). We ended up going to bed early as it was too cold to sit up. On the upside, we had a wonderful night's rest.
