Hi guys,
Just wondering if the signal cabin at Pt Pirie has been demolished recently? I had a look on Google Earth and I can’t see it anywhere. Last time I visited there was a radio station based there, but I’ve seen photos from 2015 that show the place pretty derelict.

Dylan,

Whilst I can't comment on the Cabin, Google Earth can't be relied on as being current. Each image is made up of cloud free "tiles" and could be from any point in time. Usually stacked with most recent on top, but not necessarily.

Hope you find out about the Pirie Cabin.

Cheers,

If there are satellite images showing it gone, it's probably not coming back regardless of the date of the imagery currently shown.

Quite true,

I am more making the point that you can't rely on currency with Google Earth/Maps.

The Street views do not correspond to the aerial views. Daughter has a house at Edithburgh on the Yorke Peninsula. Aerial view shows a house on the block but the street view shows a vacant block. House was built on the block over eight years ago.

I’ve looked on street view too, I’m honestly not even sure if I’m looking in the right place!
I vaguely recall it being at the end of the platform somewhere. Looks a lot more overgrown now though.

Yes it was demolished a while ago.
