This area was part of the defense network of the Hawkesbury River, NSW during WW2. It’s a small site that saw no action. It was a back up of the West Head bunkers that are further down river toward the ocean. Continue reading Juno Head Bunker

Further to my travels in the USA. Fort Point was on the list. Continue reading Fort Point, San Francisco
Exploring and abandoned bunker in the US of A.
I recently had the pleasure of visiting the United States of America for the first time as a tourist. I had visited before for work, but I didn’t get a chance to do any exploration apart from some weird smelling bunkers near the Golden Gate bridge. Continue reading Exploring and abandoned bunker in the US of A.
Drone view of Sydney’s old Explosive storage
I went for a bush walk recently and revisited the Old Explosive Storage site near Sydney. I took along my drone and captured the following footage.
If you’re interested in learning more about this site, read the full article here.
I also shot a short video showing the sheds along the water front. The video ends on the old water reservoir that could have been used to flood sheds in case of fire. You can’t see the canals unfortunately as they are all over grown.
Random roadside California
Exploring Bodie, California
I just got back from a trip to the USA with a week road tripping with my two good mates. We managed to get out to the abandoned ghost town of Bodie.
Bodie is a former gold-mining town and State Historic Park in California’s Bodie Hills, near the Nevada border. This 19th-century ghost town encompasses numerous original buildings in varying states of decay, plus artifacts and the Masonic Cemetery. Miners Union Hall houses a museum with mining tools. Northeast is the Standard Gold Mill, with machinery and information about the process of gold extraction.
We found the town to be pretty empty except the many, many parks officers guarding the place. They where all super nice and well armed. Strange to see so many guns. The message is. Don’t fk with Bodie. Continue reading Exploring Bodie, California
The wreck of the HMAS Karangi
I flew my drone over the wreck of the HMAS Karangi and fired off this 360 Pano.
Sydney Coal Loader
A while back I got bored. So I got in the car and drove over to Balls Head because it has a name that makes my inner 15 year old self giggle.
What I found was cool.
Back in the day Sydney used a lot of coal. So much so, we had shiploads coming in. So they needed some place to feed the city and surrounding areas and this was the answer.
The wreck and ruins of Sawmillers Reserve
This is a wreck of an old work boat that sits next to a park that contains the left overs of one of Sydneys old wood mills. Once an industral area, it’s now a leafy and quiet place with a brilliant view of the city. Continue reading The wreck and ruins of Sawmillers Reserve
Visiting Australia’s first blast furnace
I’d visited this site many years ago. Back when photos were made with film and dinosaurs still roamed the countryside. So I thought it would be a good to go back and take some shots that I could share on the internet.
