Lyndhurst - Cities, Towns and Localities
Located at the crossroads of the Strzelecki and Oodnadatta Track, about 605 km north of Adelaide, Lyndhurst is a historic old railway town.

Lyndhurst began life as a railway siding when construction of the Port Augusta - Government Gums line was started in 1878. With the movement of traffic along that line, Lyndhurst also became the railhead for cattle from the north-east, a short route to the previous walk along the Strzelecki Track to Farina.

Talc Alf — Stone Carvings — Alpha-Rink Art Gallery
• Located just a couple of km out of town, along the Innaminka Road you can meet the unique local outback personality, Talc Alf, whose real name is Cornelius Johan Alferink. Dutch born, Talc is a self-taught sculptor, artist, poet, bush philosopher and supporter of the new flag for Australia.

During his early years as a geologist's field assistant, Talc discovered ‘talc’ and found it a perfect medium for his hobby, sculpture. He then went on a search for the best talc deposit in Australia, which he found at Mount Fitton in the northern Flinders Ranges.

You can check out the talc stone carvings in the outdoor gallery with a number of works on permanent display, including Talc's interpretation of the origins of the English alphabet. The gallery is open to the public during day light hours, so next time you are in the neighbourhood, call in and meet the artist and free thinker and check out his art.
