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!

Work has commenced on the eagerly awaited first new building in 100 years!!!!

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!
Inside South Australia has just released
this story about us on their Blog page!

Would you like to experience baking with an original 1800's wood fired Scotch oven?

We still have places available for volunteer bakers in either a primary or secondary role, particularly during weeks 7 and 8 of our 2018 program.

Jesse Budel is a South Australian composer and sound artist currently completing a PhD at Elder Conservatorium of Music, where his research is focussed on creative responses to contrasting South Australian places, ecosystems and soundscapes (through the lens of the emerging ecological discipline, soundscape ecology).

In 2017, Jesse is undertaking an extensive professional development tour of the US and Canada in his research area of ecological music and sound art, supported by a Carclew Fellowship, Helpmann Academy Grant and Rural City of Murray Bridge Small Wins Grant. Additionally, he will be collaborating with the Zephyr Quartet to develop an urban sound installation in the Adelaide CBD, as part of a New Music Network LAB Mentorship.
