Photographer's Note

The town of Farina in central South Australia was proclaimed in 1878. It was an important rail terminus until 1884 when the line was extended further north to Marree. Wool was the primary local industry, but extensive droughts through the 1890’s saw that industry decline rapidly. The last resident died in 1960. At it height, the town boast two hotels, a post office railway station school, police station and hospital, all made from locally quarried sandstone. Today the ruins are part of the Farina Station and have a nearby camp ground. An interesting stop, especially the underground bakery.
