An abandoned church in a very small town – Terowie, South Australia.
Terowie is a small town in the mid-north of South Australia located 220 kilometres (137 mi) north of Adelaide. It is located in the Regional Council of Goyder. Terowie retains a number of authentic and well preserved 1880s buildings, and has been declared a “historic town”. It also remains a town of interest to those interested in rail history. Although now a very small town with few facilities, Terowie remains a popular destination for photographers, historians, and rail buffs. At the 2006 census, Terowie had a population of 145.
