Farina was a cattle staging area
Farina was founded in the 1870's on an outback South Australia gibber plain as the rail head for the towns that were to grow wheat well beyond Goyder's line.
The ruins are amazing every year a dedicated group of volenteers restore and salvage what is left to show what was the importance of Farina.
June/September there is a bakery which produce amazing food as a means of funding the restoration society.
The video shows only the cemetary and the camp ground with the Anzac memorial above the camp ground.
Enjoy

Amazingly vast expanses of flat nothing-ness. Hard for us Brits to grasp the sheer size of your country.

Very nicely documented.    It's great that there is an annual restoration of the area.  Hard to believe that at one time it was a major cattle staging area.

It is amazing in 2021 we drove on the main road past the entrance and popped into a ruin by the road with the old rail line build up and rails removed. There was view of farina a few kilometers away but we missed it completely.

Sometimes things can be very near and we still miss them.  At least with a drone when can extend our exploration efforts quite a bit.

That is for sure I have seen some astounding view not possible with normal eyesight.

Just another advantage we have as drone owners.
