Heritage listed Morialta Barns at Norton Summit, South Australia.
When I see these barns, delapidated and collapsing, and realise the effort that the pioneer builders and farmers put in to erecting the barns and just managing to survive in those times, at the “Edge of Empire”, I feel proud of their efforts but also realise humanity will never triumph over nature. The ruins stand now as mute testiment to those hard times, in grassy picturesque splendour surrounded by the rolling Adelaide Hills.
