Historic Homestead, Flinders Ranges, South Australia

Historic Homestead, Flinders Ranges, South Australia

This photograph is a special, limited edition piece of Old Wilpena Station in the Flinders Ranges.  This station was established in 1851, and was in operation amazingly until 1986.  It is the most complete group of early station buildings surviving in South Australia in an authentic pastoral landscape.  Its beautiful natural setting amongst humongous gum trees and its historic importance easily justify its heritage listing.

I allowed my imagination to wander with this image, and pictured the settlement in its early pioneering days in the 19th century.  In what may look old and mundane to some people, I found immense beauty.  You can picture the general running of the station amongst the stables, bookkeeper's hut, motor house and general store.  The well-preserved old brick buildings, gum trees showing their age from centuries of harsh conditions, and the surrounding mountains, make for a romantic take on this site as you peer back through Australia's pastoral history.

After a long day's hard work on the station, this certainly would have been a beautiful country scene to return in an outback environment.

Captured on one 6x17cm transparency film frame.


I have personally selected a specific mix of print size, an Italian hand crafted timber frame and mat colour to brilliantly complement this special piece.  This is also my smallest edition size, reflecting the exclusivity of the image.
