With Mount Remarkable as a spectacular backdrop, Booleroo Centre is the hub of a rich agricultural area 17 kilometres east of Melrose. It is home to South Australia's largest collection of steam and traction engines, with more than 150 machines housed at the local museum.
Every April, steam enthusiasts from across the country come to Booleroo Centre for its annual rally. Together with the twin farming community of Murraytown, they feature many points of interest and provide a range of basic facilities for the tourist. There are several scenic drives and lookouts such as Box Hill, Magners Hill and Baroota Nob.
