Growing and eating local living foods has been linked to a decrease in allergies. It’s also good for the planet because it helps lighten our carbon footprint. Enjoy a feast of local flavours for your eyes and tastebuds at the Transcontinental Hotel in August, part of illuminart's Constellation Stories in Light Trail, with a special locally grown feast prepared by their incredible chefs.

Savour specials infused with local bush tucker foods, celebrating in particular fragrant lemon myrtle and the glossy quandong, a quintessential and delicious arid land food for which Quorn is renowned. After tripping out your taste buds you can take an incredibly short walk over the road for illuminart's Quorn Silo Light Show Constellation feature animations. They will reveal much more about some of the local living bush foods of the Flinders before you are flung into the future for a wi-fly sci-fi adventure around the incredibly ancient formations and landmarks of the Flinders Ranges. 

The Trans, while younger than the Ranges, is the oldest Hotel in Quorn  As the the bush tucker capital of the world, this traditional Australian country hotel will also serve other rejuvenating, guilt-free fare like a locally made quandong chicken and King George whiting fresh from the Spencer Gulf, a marine environment explored in illuminart's Port Pirie City Projection Constellation feature shows.

The Trans is a laid back Aussie country hotel for a relaxing holiday in South Australia's scenic Flinders Ranges. Hearty meals at very reasonable prices for lunch or dinner to be enjoyed in Navvies Nook by the open fire or in the large dining room. Games and toys for children, affordable, friendly accommodation and welcoming facilities. Ask about a takeaway option and bring your sunset picnic to the Constellation show.
