The source of the opera music I head as I rode into the Willochra Plain. All the result of one man with a van, a generator, three speakers and heaps of enthusiasm.
Simmonston, sometimes known as The Town That Never Was, was a town that was built in anticipation of a railway extension expected to go to Quorn. When the railway went to Gordon instead, the town was abandoned before having been occupied. All that remains are the ruins in the Willochra Plain.
The foundations of a building in what was named, but never became, the town of Simmonston are nearly completed consumed by brush.
