Blyth Homestead is fascinating old tin roof building found in Litchfield National Park on the way to Tjaynera Falls. As well as this building, there is the location of an old tin mine nearby.

This homestead site is a reminder of the really tough conditions pioneers in remote areas were facing.
Blyth Homestead was established by the Sargent Family in 1929 and was abandoned in the early 1960s.

Yet another pictorial diary captured so perfectly. I love the attention to detail, and the randomness in your approach to capturing and cataloguing such a vast array of rather unique images. The whole series has been quite inspirational in a lot of many ways. Once again thank you for taking time out to share them with us all.

Great set of shots Jean-Noel. Was just going to say that my favourite was V3, until I opened V6. Brilliant - love that one. Moira

A great set.
I especially like the croc warning sign - I don't think I've ever seen one before.

I find myself imaging how noisy that building must have been during heavy rain, though...reckon it'd have driven me mad.

Nice set of a somewhat hostile enviroment. V3 edges it for me.

The people who pioneered these remote outposts were tough as nails. Here in the states we'd call this a "hard scabble farm". I love v6, and echo its sentiments!

There must be loads of hidden tales hereSmile

The water source must have prompted them to settle there. I presume?
