Sedan is a rural town in South Australia. It is located about 100 kilometres east of Adelaide and about 20 kilometres west of the Murray River. It is located on the dry eastern side of the Mount Lofty Ranges.
Sedan used to be the terminus of the South Australian Railways' Sedan line, which opened on 13 October 1919, and was curtailed to Cambrai in 1964.
Surrounded by dry-stone walls built by early settlers, the historic town of Sedan is home to many 19th century buildings that are in excellent condition.
The Sedan Heritage Trail - available from the Sedan Hotel - is a good way to discover the town. Once a busy railway town, complete with steam flour mill and agricultural machinery factory, Sedan was settled in the 1850s by German settlers.
