Quorn is a little out of the way country town a hop and a skip
from the rugged Outback. The gateway to the Flinders Ranges
and once a thriving country town, but asthe seasons changed
and the and rural prosperity declined,it now relies mainly on
the tourist trade.
lack op people, wonder no more, not everyone gets up with
the sun as I do. They were either still abed or at breakfast.
a steam train running from here in all but the fire dangerous
summer months. The train has been restored and is run entirely
A few hotels from the Victorian era are still in business and
we normally patronise The Criterion when travelling north.

What a delightful looking town. I love places like this. I'll bet the train ride would be fun.ReplyDelete
What an interesting place! Reminds me of some towns like that in Arizona. Love those open BLUE skies! Terrific captures as always, Arija! Hope your week is off to a great start! Enjoy!ReplyDelete
Arija, what a lovely post of an equally lovely town, very quaint, very charming~ReplyDelete
With no cars, no traffic, no people it looks like a village preserved for ever for history. Interesting!ReplyDelete
What a charming place!!!ReplyDelete
What a lovely little place. It looks like an old film town. GorgeousReplyDelete
Frontier towns have a common look but this one is especially attractive. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.ReplyDelete
What an interesting look at this town. How smart you are to get up in time to shoot without having lots of people around. I should do that when I'm photographing towns as I am very shy with my camera around people which is part of why I tend to stick to nature type shots with a few exceptions.ReplyDelete
Bring in some horses and carts, and this will be blooming with tourists looking for a rustic time.ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing, it's kind of similar to some places near us actually.ReplyDelete
Also thank you for your kind words about the compressor. We are still waiting to hear and there is more snow on the way now! But the Hubster is less stressed thank goodness.
That looks like a lovely town - I'd certainly want to visit if I was in that part of the world.ReplyDelete
Charming little town Arija. How early do you get up? I would love to see your steam train.too.ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful rest of the week.
Your photos radiate warmth and optimism. Back then doesn't seem so long ago.ReplyDelete
Its a quaint and peaceful town. It would be a nice getaway from the city.ReplyDelete
Quorn seems very much like Castlemaine in Victoria - always tricky to get the light under the balconies correct!ReplyDelete
Beautiful and traditional town. It looks like a very peaceful place. Love to see some blooming flowers or a garden there too. I think it would make the town look even prettier.ReplyDelete
What a cute town, reminds me of the old west here in the states. The railroad station is beautiful. Great photos.ReplyDelete
Agree - charming.ReplyDelete
What a beautiful place your world is! I would love to stay at one of existing hotels if I have a chance.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing.
Arija, what a quaint and delightful town you live in. It reminds me so much of westerns my dad used to watch when I was a kid.ReplyDelete
Quite a charming town! I did wonder about the lack of people, hehehehe. Say, that palm tree by the train station is quite full and beautiful! It's a giant lollipop!ReplyDelete
that looks like a fun little place, my kinda town - tiny and quiet :) Lots of character I'm guessing? And close to the Outback - very cool!ReplyDelete
