An entire Outback city that is almost deserted has hit the property market for just $ 65,000.

Only six people live in the ghost settlement of Copley, about 580 km north of Adelaide, in South Australia.

For sales agent Geoff Williams it is too good a deal to pass up.

& # 39; There is a lot of history here. History that the younger generations will know nothing about unless we save it. & # 39;

The asking price of less than $ 70,000 also provides the buyer with six separate retail items, a lockable retail space, two homes, and two separate residential units.

Mr. Williams noted that the city shared a rich history with the nearby settlement of Leigh Creek.

He said the two cities would have shared a population of 400 people during the peak days 20 years ago.

He noted that Copley was once a social hub where visitors went to drink at the local pub and the women went to buy dresses and have their hair done.

The Outback city was a former pit stop along the Ghan railway, a train track that connects Adelaide with Alice Springs and Darwin.

The 2,979 kilometer journey takes 48 hours and has been in use since 1878.

However, the circuit was only connected to Alice Springs in 1929 and expanded northwards to Darin in 2004.

Although there is not much to Copley nowadays, the city still has its hidden gems.

The local Quandong Cafe continues to serve its famous coffee and cakes, while the city continues to attract nature lovers.
