Karl and Bobbie Roth are not the only residents of Larrimah who say that it is dying. "All the old houses are falling down, nobody wants them, and our population … we're all in our 70s and 80s," Mr Roth said.
"We'll all die out eventually."
The couple retired in the Northern Territory highway town just over 20 years ago. It had nothing more than a hotel, a tea house, and a museum.
Back then the bright-pink pub would be packed every Friday night, but slowly the population dwindled to just 12.
