Pinnaroo is a rural centre in the eastern border districts of South Australia. It is a thriving small town with many fine facilities.

As you approach the town on the way to Ouyen in north western Victoria, or going the other way towards Adelaide, the most prominent feature of the town would have to be the towering wheat silos. This is a very productive wheat and other cereal grain growing district. During the summer months the area around the wheat silos are abuzz with activity as the farmers truck in the grain from their crops, ready for storage in the silos. Later it will be trucked interstate for sale or put on to trains heading to Port Adelaide on route for export to many markets overseas, or to local flour mills.
