Colton Historic Town Site and Colton Cemetery

An old pioneer town, complete with a hotel, church, school and cemetery. The cemetery is the burial site of the first Greek settler to South Australia, George Tramountanas (North), who arrived in SA in 1822 at the age of 20. He loved the land and the sea and brought with him the skills and knowledge of his homeland.

His headstone tells his story both in Greek and English. An olive grove lines the walk to the gate in his honour. Fact sheets are available from the Elliston Community and Visitor Information Centre.
