The Far North is a large region of South Australia close to the Northern Territory border. Colloquial usage of the term in South Australia refers to that part of South Australia north of a line roughly from Ceduna through Port Augusta to Broken Hill. The South Australian Government defines the Far North region similarly with the exception of the Maralinga Tjarutja Lands. the Yalata Aboriginal community and other unincorporated crown lands in the state's far west, which are officially considered part of the Eyre and Western region.
The region is both the largest and also the least populated of the state. The Far North is also known as the Arid Lands of South Australia as much of the region is desert.
The region has scattered tourist attractions and facilities as well as national parks and reserves.
