Karawinna and the Morkalla Railway

Once upon a time, Karawinna was served by the Morkalla railway line from 1924 until it closed in 1988. Once most of the towns along the railway line shrank, with reduced populations caused by technology and increased farm size, the line became used only on a seasonal basis, so was not worth keeping open.

Karawinna industries

The main income for the area is derived from sheep and wheat farming.
