Remnants of the Past: The Old Homestead

I recently spotted this old stone homestead on a farm near the highway north of Burra in the mid-north of South Australia. These types of places are dotted all over this region and make you wonder what type of life people lived out there in an age before cars and trucks rushed by?

I wonder why they left this home?
