Petrol Station

Petrol Station

Lomonisity in the Australian Outback.

Murnpeowie Station in Far North South Australia.
A lone bowser stands like a sentry on guard duty at the back of the homestead.

Apparently the Strzelecki Track used to pass within spitting distance of the old homestead door?
I can’t say for sure, but what I do know is this.
The station receives it’s mail twice a week, that’s two round trips and a 1000km later.

I should know because I delivered it and what a fantastic experience it was too.

The mail must get through, and it does thanks to Land Rover reliability (he says with both fingers crossed behind his back)
