Pekina, about 16 kilometres to the south of Orroroo, has strong Irish Catholic roots. The immediate district has been dubbed, ‘Vatican Valley’.

Close by you can see Pekina Station Ruins. Be amazed by the infamous Magnetic Hill. Magnetic Hill is a well-known tourist attraction because of its ability to make vehicles appear as if they are rolling uphill. Visit Carinya to experience 13 kilometres of self four-wheel driving in unspoilt bushlands.
