Old Tailem Town

Recommended Posts

We landed up in this odd little town called Tailem Bend. The town's centre is tiny but there is this awesome place called Old Tailem Town.

For those that haven't been there, it was quite fun, and I guess different.

$20 per adult and $5 per child was what we had to pay, and I feel it was worth it.

Their brochure reads 'You just have to see the most realistic and largest walk back in time Australia has to offer. It really is another world!'

:ilikeit:

Saying that though, we arrived at Tailem Town to find we had no cash on us... we eventually managed to find an ATM 10 minutes away at a dodgy pokie bar...

THAT was an experience!

The town also felt a bit eerie at times, almost like a nuclear bomb went off years back and we were walking around a 'ghost' town...

Wow, can you just imagine, way back when all the corrugated were straight, neat and freshly painted, the cars and waterpumps were shining new, there walked people with spic-&-span clothes, horse carts and proud horses. There most probably were little well-kept gardens, or hanging pots with flowers on the porches. Children were playing around, laughing and running. Old people sitting on the porches, chatting. Daily newspaper advert were put up somewhere, telling of the latest news on the gold rush. Can you just imagine...

Good pics Red! I like the first picture the most.

The "Alaska Ice" at the General Dealer is rather amusing. :ilikeit:

What are you talking about??

They did drop a nuclear bomb on Tailem Bend.

Didn't you know? . . . . . all that nuclear fall-out and radiation for the next 250 000 years . . . .

Did you glow in the dark when you all got home later on?

Ah Bob that explains it all!!! I fully understand the 'glowing in the dark' thing now... :ilikeit:

We're missing you here in Adelaide... hurry home... we still haven't had skippy for tea!

I really liked that one too... especially because when I see it I remember how weirdly the guy kept staring at us...

He must have thought, stupid tourists... I'm not part of the show!
