Welcome…

To the official website of the Farina Restoration Project Group.

Farina is located within the Lake Eyre Basin, on the old alignment of the Ghan railway, 26 km north of Lyndhurst and 55 km south of Marree along the Oodnadatta Track in South Australia. The town is no longer inhabited, but a small group is restoring parts of Farina to reflect its past and ensure that it is retained in the history of Australia's outback. See why nobody lives there now!

2017 VOLUNTEER form now in operation

If you’d like to be kept informed about happenings at Farina, maybe you’d consider registering as a Friend. We’ll send you periodic newsletters, and after seeing what we’re up to, you might also decide to register as a Volunteer. Being a Friend costs you nothing, and you could learn lots about this little piece of outback South Australian History!

Next opening of the Farina bakery will not be until May 21, 2017

Next ANZAC
ceremony at Farina is to be held in 2018.

We have a new Facebook page!

The new page is devoted to collecting the social history of Farina. If you have a story about your family as it applies to Farina, and/or have some old family photographs shot in Farina, then we encourage you to post them on our new site.
As information builds, we may be able to begin putting together an in-depth social history of the old town. Remember - your story may be all that is required to unearth many more from others with Farina connections.
