YONGALA Mid-north of South Australia

© Jan Pudney

Located 11 Kms south of Peterborough, Yongala was proclaimed a town on 23 May 1876. It started with a tent and an iron shed, growing to a population of 353 when it was thought that the railway would pass through the town. Instead it went through Peterborough. While it is still a pretty little town, its decline is apparent with most of the shops, commercial and public buildings now closed.
