Iron Knob, South Australia. Referred to as the birth place of the iron industry in Australia, it now has a population of under 200.
This abandoned service station and motel on the edge of town is a sad reminder of better times in Iron Knob. Prices for land and
houses are low, with houses available under $40,000. But for all its remoteness, these are the ghost towns that could attract
retirees looking for a cheaper alternative to the high cost housing in cities. And before you ask, yes I could be tempted.
