HawkerApril 23 in Australia
A great little spot, Hawker was a true railway town, established along the Ghan railway in the 1880s and thriving until the line was moved west in 1956. The old station house now operates as a restaurant called, strangely, The Ghan.
The town’s other main attraction is the Jeff Morgan Gallery & Panoramas. Morgan is a local artist of international standing and his gallery is amazing. Prolific artworks - notably landscapes and native animals - fill the huge shopfloor. From there, one enters a door to view four amazing panoramas depicting various local scenes from Wilpena Pound to Arkaroola. The work really takes your breath away. It also houses a huge rock, mineral and fossil collection as well. His sign out the front is a worry, though. 😁Read more
