At the base of the dolerite-covered Hantam Mountains, hundreds of miles from anywhere, is this remote outback town with laid-back charm. Home to blazing bright light during the day, clear skies at night, quaint white-stone buildings and tree-lined streets, Calvinia is the principal town in this sheep-farming region. It's quiet for most of the year but when the rocky countryside blooms in spring, nearly all of the year’s tourists arrive in one frenetic burst.
