Artist's Description

The old railway station at Nairne in the Adelaide Hills.

It is a great shame that the Mt Barker Council have let it go to ruin & not use it, as suggested, as a community / arts centre. With the rapid expansion of the Nairne district it would certainly be put to good use, but all the council can see are obstacles & liability…as it’s right by the railway track…just like The Hutt in Aldgate….Hmmmm.

I have transposed a close up image of the peeling paint on the station’s stone wall, over the image to highlight it’s sad dereliction.

The Nairne Railway Station opened in 1883. Two platforms were build at the time. The original stone built station remains, although sadly neglected, and the smaller platform was demolished. The Nairne Railway Station was closed in the 1960’s when the country passenger service from Adelaide ceased to operate.
