Burra, South Australia, Australia

This derelict farm cottage near the town of Burra, in South Australia, was made famous after a photograph of it was used as the cover for the Australian rock band Midnight Oil's album ‘Diesel and Dust’ in the 1980s. This old farmhouse lies abandoned yet stands as testimony to the dreams of early pioneers seeking to establish farms in the harsh outback of South Australia. Old abandoned farmhouses like this remain across South Australia, proof that life on the land can be tough to survive.
