St. Brigids Hospital Asylum, County Galway, Ireland

The deserted Midway Taxi rank in Perth’s northwest has recently been sold to a local developer. It carried a price guide of more than $5 million when it hit the market.

In order to reduce the dependence on Westrail’s ageing wooden coaches, Hotham Valley initiated a worldwide search in 1987 for second-hand, modern steel coaches that would meet the needs of the railway for a very long time into the future. The outcome of this search was the acquisition of a large fleet of eminently suitable […]

Abandoned Marapana Wildlife Park, Perth, WA

Marapana Wildlife Park used to be a hotspot for families and children to enjoy nature, the outdoors and the exquisite animals that can be found in Western Australia. For any newcomer to Australia, like myself, this attraction would have been the perfect place to see animals such as camels, koalas, crocodiles, kangaroos and snakes up […]

Abandoned Soap Factory Tunnel, Perth, WA [VIDEO]

In 1905, the Burford Soap Factory was established in Fremantle, Perth. At the same time, a 96-metre tunnel was built, behind the factory. The original factory building has since been renovated into apartments, but the abandoned tunnel remains. At just 1.8 metres high and 1.4 metres wide, it’s a tight squeeze, and it gets a […]

Abandoned House in Clackline, Perth, WA

I found this tiny grubby bungalow whilst exploring the abandoned Clackline Refractory and Quarry. I have never seen so much wall writing in any abandoned building and it was all so bad and crude I felt like I was in a museum of bad words. To make it even more unsightly, there was a dead […]

Abandoned Clackline Refractory & Quarry, Perth, WA

The tiny, rural town of Clackline dates back to the late 1880s. Western Australia was expanding its railway network, and Clackline was smack bang in the centre of three of those lines. It was the perfect spot to set up an undisturbed industrial town in the middle of nowhere.  By 1898, it was mostly railway […]

Abandoned Fremantle Veterinary Hospital, Perth, WA

Constructed in 1906, this single-storey limestone and iron house is historically significant for its Australian Victorian-Georgian style of architecture, which can be seen by the symmetrical facades. This type of architecture is prominent in Fremantle, where this site is located. During the 1990s and early 2000s, the building was being used by the Fremantle Veterinary […]

Abandoned Motel in Perth, WA [VIDEO]

This abandoned motel was a lovely find after I finished exploring the Greenacre Riding School in Wellard. It felt like old school urbex, you know, hopping over a fence and just straight away walking into the open arms of an abandoned building with not one window boarded up! Gone are those days for the most […]

The Most Spookiest Abandoned House in Perth, WA [VIDEO]

There are very few buildings that I would deliberately go out of my way NOT to return to, and this house is definitely on that list. You know when you can’t shake a spooky feeling? The feeling that makes you want to run? Well, both times I visited this place, I wanted to run every […]

Abandoned Princess Margaret Children’s Hospital in Perth, WA, PMH [VIDEO]

Finding the abandoned Princess Margaret Hospital for Children (PMH) in Perth, Western Australia was a pure fluke. I had originally gone out with the intention of finding an abandoned hotel but whilst driving around the perimeter of the not-so-exciting looking hotel, this huge, formidable building with scaffolding caught my eye. “Princess Margaret Children’s Hospital” was […]

Abandoned Riverbank Prison in Perth, WA

Riverbank was opened in 1960 by the Australian Child Welfare Department (CWD). It was Australia’s first purpose-built maximum security reformatory for boys. Riverbank was to address the two tensions in youth offending: the welfare needs of young offenders, and their offending behaviours. The CWD aimed to have a ‘reformatory’ effect on the boys committed to […]
