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...

Located in Nagasaki Prefecture, this drab building looked just like any other boring office complex, but a closer inspection revealed what appeared to be vines growing from inside its inner windows (perhaps interior decorating gone too far? - no, it was abandoned!).   So a sneak inside (via a window) revealed an office that had been deserted since (I’m figuring by dates on calendars) the 90’s, albeit with furnishings that appeared to be from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s....

A hike to a tiny abandoned Japanese mountain village called Irorijyuku. It was discarded after an earthquake in 2013 with its buildings deemed as unliveable, so nobody returned. Its unaccessible due to blocked off roads and heavy snow fall so we hiked up the mountain with snow shoes to check it out. The buiildings are almost buried completely in snow.

Located in Nara prefecture, this tiny little mountain schoool would be impossible to find if you didnt already know of its existence. 

Situated in the middle of the mountains at the end of a tiny winding road, this wooden two story school closed down many years ago, leaving behind a number if interesting bits and pieces in its classrooms and hallways.

In the science room we found animal organs floating in formaldehyde, dusty books still sitting on shelves in the librar...

Love hotels are dotted all over Japan. They operate as short stay establishments where couples can fool around in the privacy of an intimate space for a few hours, or maybe an entire night. Most tend to adopt a fun theme to attract prospective punters (such as jungle, medieval, Moroccan or American Colonial etc) and a lot of effort is put into their interior and exterior style. These places are extremely popular all over Japan and get an abundance of business.

 

Once a po...

Abandoned theme parks are always fun to check out (more so than visiting active theme parks).   

Built in 1975 and with a North American western colonial theme, its doors were closed forever in 2007 (due to lack of public interest).  It now sits abandoned, derelict and rotting away on the edge of a small rural town.

I reached the park in the early afternoon after a long drive (I was actually on my way to an abandoned hotel in the mountains and sort of stumbled acr...

Explored in February 2014, this semi abandoned town has a nice derelict hospital.  Filled with operating theatres, waiting rooms and consulting suites, it was a great place to take some snaps.
