We left Peterborough and continued south to Burra on our South Australia trip with 4 friends. On the way we detoured and called into the ghost town of Terowie. On our last tour here on a bus we stopped at the historic station( see my old post) but we didn't go into town to see the old buildings nor did we stop at the paddock of sculptures. This time we were driving ourselves and so could stop for a nosey around.
Just before the old town there is a paddock full of metal sculptures. I wasn't overly impressed except for the long line of old bicycles attached to the fence.
After years of drought the farmers gave up their farms and moved as well. Now there are about 100 people left.
It is sad to see these buildings not being used, I wonder what will happen to them.

I laughed at the typical Aussie farewell as we headed out of town towards the main road.
However, I think it makes beautiful scenery and photos.
This is what the farmers prefer to see. Typical Aussie farmland with grain and sheep but no Paterson's Curse.
