The Snowtown Wind Farm is located 5km west of Snowtown and 170km north of Adelaide in South Australia.
The wind farm is positioned on the Barunga and Hummocks Ranges which are part of a number of low-lying ridgelines running north-south in the mid-north region of the state. The elevation of the Ranges varies from approximately 300m to 430m above mean sea level.
