2. Farina, South Australia

This is a ghost town located on the edge of the desert. It was founded in 1878 year farmers and at the peak of its development, its population was approximately 600 person. But years of drought and dust storms led to the closure of the nearby mines (in 1927), and the reorganization of the Ghan railway line, that led the city to eventually become deserted.
