Mid North

The Mid North is a region of South Australia, north of the Adelaide Plains, but not as far north as the Far North, or outback. It is generally accepted to extend from Spencer Gulf east to the Barrier Highway, including the coastal plain, the southern part of the Flinders Ranges, and the northern part of the Mount Lofty Ranges. The area was settled as early as 1840 (South Australia was only settled from 1836) and provided early farming and mining to the fledgeling colony. Farming is still significant in the area, particularly wheat, sheep and grapevines. There are not currently any significant mining activities in the Mid North.

Grapes are grown in the Clare Valley and Southern Flinders Ranges wine regions. Copper was formerly mined at Kapunda and Burra.

The main indigenous group of the Mid North are the Ngadjuri people.[1] There were disputes and conflicts between the white settlers and the Aborigines, particularly in the 1850s and 1860s, but Ngadjuri people remain in the area and hold Native Title rights over the area.[2]
