The town and its surrounding areas are richly agricultural and support cereal crops, wool production, seeds, dairying, viticulture and horticulture.

SA Tourism – Limestone Coast

The Limestone Coast region is located south of Adelaide and stretches down the coast from the Coorong National Park to the Victorian border. From there, many travellers link up with the Great Ocean Road. In summer months, coastal towns such as Robe and Beachport swell in population as visitors make the most of the stunning beaches and fresh seafood. Winter months are a popular time for the historic towns of Penola and Naracoorte while the Coonawarra wine region is an all-year round favourite.


Housing / Population / Real Estate

Population of Bordertown is approximately 2,500. The cost of housing in the Limestone Coast is considerably cheaper than in the capital cities, with a greater variety of housing available. A number of subdivisions with acreage allotments have been popular with those wanting their own space. The ability to salary sacrifice relocation expenses makes the cost of moving more affordable.
