The logo concept depicts the inconic farmhouse ruin and the rolling hills of the Goyder Region.
The farmhouse ruin is a reflective historic legacy of the region's agricultural progress and its relationship with Goyder's Line. The colour palette of the rolling hills reflects the changing seasonal landscape across the region and has been given a modern touch with stylised illustration.
