Orroroo is a small town on the R M Williams Highway between Jamestown and Hawker. It is a town where people pause for refreshment and stay forever. It contains all the amenities necessary for comfortable living - shops, a hospital, doctor, pharmacy, sporting clubs, service stations......all set within wide tree lined streets of spacious house blocks for early stone and modern homes. Like the majority of the Mid Northern towns it is very clean, and very well maintained.

The surrounding countryside, just outside Goyder's Line of rainfall, has the arid beauty of the approaching outback, set within the soft foothills of the Southern Flinders Ranges.

Huge ancient gum trees thrive alongside the Pekina Creek which winds past the town, accessed by dirt roads, cycle tracks and walks past aboriginal rock carvings down to a small reservoir, behind Tank Hill with its magnificent lookout.

THE WANTS OF ORROROO.

TO THE EDITOR.

Sir— Through the medium of your paper I should like to ventilate the wants of the important but much-neglected township of Orroroo. The most pressing of our wants is and has been the long-felt one of a Police Station and Court house.

At present the police are accommodated in a shanty composed of wood and iron, situated about half a mile from the township, for which the proprietor I believe receives an exorbitant rental, and when an arrest takes place you may readily imagine the amount of inconvenience and annoyance that has to be encountered in lagging the unfortunate to durance vile, let alone the walk again the poor trooper has to go through next morning when he brings his often too unwilling guest of the previous night before the Magistrate.

Besides, it is undesirable that a large township like this should be without the police resident in it. A Courthouse is almost as badly wanted as the former. This is the centre of a very large district, where a large number of cases come on for hearing on a full Court-day, and the majesty of the law ought to be dispensed in a more fitting place than the dining-room of a public-house.

The Government holds plenty of available land, so it is only a matter of erecting the necessary buildings. I may also mention that the present Local Court office consists of little better than a wooden box, which has done service in sundry places and at different times, and in different businesses.

I am, Sir, &c,

PRO BONO PUBLICO. Orroroo, October 21, 1880.
