Horrocks Highway / Barrier Highway Split:
Looking northbound at the junction with the Barrier Highway. A32 splits from B82 and veers right from here. Giles Corner, December 2007.

Giles Corner isn't a town, just a locality. The name is in honour of Thomas Giles, son of William Giles, who was once general manager of the South Australia Company. Thomas Giles was a business partner of George Alexander Anstey, who was an early pastoralist on the Yorke Peninsula and is remembered by the landmark Anstey Hill in the Adelaide Hills, overlooking the Adelaide suburb of Hope Valley.
