Australian Towns & Cities
South Australia: Nairne
Incorporating photos and Information from Michael Greenslade's former Australian Towns, Cities and Highways site

Nairne, located in the eastern Adelaide Hills lies between Mt Barker and Murray Bridge on the Old Princes Highway. Established originally as part of the short lived gold mining operations that resulted from the nearby Kanmantoo and Callington, the town eventually became an important stop on the Princes Highway, until it was bypassed by the South-Eastern Freeway in the mid 1970's. Nairne, along with the small town of Littlehampton (4km west) have now become quiet settlements which, along with the nearby Mt Barker have undergone recent growth due to their peaceful settings and close proximity with Adelaide.
