The Overland range is named after the iconic Overland Corner located in the Riverland, some 20 kilometres outside of Barmera along the Murray River. The area has a rich history including being used as settlement for drovers travelling between South Australia and New South Wales during the gold rush and an aboriginal camping ground. The Overland Corner Hotel is now heritage listed and its attached museum portrays its iconic legacy.
