Click here to see the Jamestown website (opens in a new tab)

Jamestown's excellent and informative website has a comprehensive Business Directory, listing the town's many and varied facilities, and showing that Jamestown is both thriving and successful. (The 7 day Foodland supermarket more than rivals Port Pirie.)

This is a comfortable town to live in - not so big that it's impossible to feel part of the community - small enough that the shop assistants remember you with a smile. It is full of friendly people, many of whom have gone away to Adelaide or further, but returned.

207 kilometres north of Adelaide, it is on the banks of the Belalie Creek and the railway line between Gladstone and Peterborough runs through it. The town was surveyed in 1871 and, by 1878, most of the beautiful stone buildings in the main (Ayr) street had been built. It was the first town with a tree planting programme which, having started in 1879, provides the streets with now massive and majestic trees. The Belalie Creek was dammed at around the same period, providing ornamental, fresh green areas. The view from the dentist's window is particularly soothing.

As the Mid North area grows and changes, Jamestown has become a centre for people retiring from the land, Adelaide, or just suburbia and, consequently, health facilities have developed and improved. The hydrotherapy pool is a significant asset.

The town has a common effluent drainage system and reticulated mains water, brought all the way from the River Murray at Morgan.
