Abandoned pup at Farina, outback South Australia (near Maree).
Farina was established in 1878 by over optimistic wheat and barley growers. The hotel is either the Exchange or the Transcontinental and is clearly abandoned. The railway line allowed the post office to operate into the 60’s, however this also has been left for the desert.
