Artist's Description

This town died when the railway that
sustained its existence re-routed.
An eerie ghost town with faded shop fronts
and a host of photographic possibilities -
especially during a stormy sunset –
draping life over this faded facade and (almost)
lifeless town.
Terowie SA 2007
Made famous as the town where Gen Douglas MacArthur gave his “I shall return” speech on March 20th 1942 at the railway siding – a rest stop on his way by train from Darwing to Adelaide. (Visit the plaque on the deserted platform)

Taken on a three day trip from Barossa to Broken Hill to Mildura looking for typical australiana to grace the 2008 CoolDrive calendar.
