Marrabel - Mid North Region, South Australia.

Marrabel is famous (in South Australia anyway) for its annual rodeo and an interesting sculpture of a man trying to tame a horse, which dominates the main intersection. The town was laid out by a butcher and landowner named John Marrabel in 1859. Although today the town is tiny, its substantial architecture suggests a more populous and quite wealthy past. Indeed, St Agnes RC Church is still in use.
