Coraki 2471


The main street of Coraki has a neglected, time has passed it by feel. Once it was a great riverboat town situated at the junction of the Wilson and Richmond Rivers but it was bypassed by the railway and has slowly declined into a rural backwater.
I'm not sure when the Club Hotel closed down but it feels like it's just waiting to be reinvented and serve some new exciting purpose.

  2. It's a fine looking building - hope it is saved somehow!

  3. It is a crying shame when railways (and highways) bypass these towns allowing them to die.

  4. Rural backwaters can be a photographer's mecca for the unusual! This looks like one of those places! The building looks as if it may once have been quite grand!

  5. I love backwater towns .,, lovely to see this one. And I agree, this should be a nice B&B or something.
