Australia Marree Mosque

A mosque was constructed at Hergott Springs in 1862 by camel breeder Abdul Kadir for members of the South Australian Afghan community. Today nothing remains apart from some stumps. The "Afghans" were generally Muslims from then-British India, although some came from Afghanistan and the Middle East. They worked as camel drivers and breeders in the region. This structure is believed to be a replica built in the town of Maree.
