A flawed reactor combined with inadequately trained personnel led to Chernobyl’s catastrophic nuclear meltdown on 26 April 1986.  Within days, the nearby town of Pripyat, the civic area that housed thousands of the plants workers and families, underwent a mass evacuation.  Declared a permanent zone of exclusion and deemed unliveable for years to come, the city now sits in silence as nature swallows up the crumbling remnants of a once industrious Soviet era township....

Located in the mid-South Australian desert, this sand- filled ghost town was built on the ambitious promise of wheat and barley production. But the regions harsh desert climate resulted in poor agricultural conditions, deeming much of the land unworkable. Also utilised as a trucking yard for livestock that travelled down the Birsdville track, the area once had a bustling population of approximately 600 residents.

Containing two hotels, two breweries and a bakery, the only...

Once a bustling mining hub filled with activity, the now deserted township of Big Bell bakes in the arid West Australian desert. Established in the mid 1930’s, the area catered to miners and families who congregated on the gold and mineral rich area. With a population peaking at 850 in 1954, the now deserted space is an abandoned patch where only a few traces of its once urbanised landscape remain. 

Revealing the villages original layout, rows of gridded dirt tracks r...

This cinema has been abandoned for 40 years with the exception of a few one off viewings including Mission Impossible 2 in the early 2000's...

The dust covered projector room still includes all of its original equipment including film reels, Raycophone projector, cassettes and audio equipment.  

A coal fired power station that operated between 1956 and 1986.   Once considered the largest in the state, the plant supplied electricity to New South Wales.

Positioned on Lake Macquarie at Wangi Wangi, the power station was officially opened on 7 November 1958 after ten years of construction.  Approximately one thousand people lived in the area during this period.

Although the plant was abandoned in 1986 the main building still stands as of M...

This old farm house was located far west of Melbourne in the middle of a tiny community.  Its previous occupants obviously had a lot to do with horses because the rooms were filled with horse photos and race horse memorabilia.  A bit of sadness hung over the place because almost everything from their lives had been totally left behind....

This Coles Supermarket closed its doors forever in 2009.  A few bits and pieces still lying around.  Funny to see 2009 cigarette prices (cigarettes in Australia go up by approximately 10% each year).  Slime on some of the floors and a lot of broken glass.  Located in a small south eastern Australian country town, no one seems to know what to do with the derelict property.

An abandoned shack in a small Australian country town.  Kitschy, small, filled with possum shit and had something crawling around in the ceiling.

A dilapidated rural house in Country Victoria, Australia.  Its interior being somewhat surreal and dreamlike while outside, furniture and rubbish lay strewn across shrubs and dead grass.

Located in South Eastern Australia, this boys home was left to decay approximately 20 years ago.  Some nice wooden interiors that were sadly rotting away.  The living areas were a little on the spooky side (disused orphanages and children's homes aways make for a sombre explore).  Fortunately due to heritage listings, this building cannot be demolished which means it will remain here for quite some time until someone sources a purpose for it.
