LOCATION: Flinders Ranges, South Australia, Australia
The history of farming in South Australia is a fascinating story that has much to do with producing food for the early colonists.
Life on the land was no sinecure, with drought, rabbits, dingoes, falling wool prices, overstocking all becoming important elements in the evolving story.
In early times, there were no boundaries or fences, so graziers employed shepherds to tend their flocks. In turn, they built simple accommodations to provide vital shelter in a harsh & unforgiving environment.
While some succeeded in this difficult land & consolidated their holdings into large stations, many were not so fortunate & were eventually forced to abandon.
These humble ‘ruins’ are to me a legacy of that struggle. Succeed & grow or fail & die.
