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.

The CWD aimed to have a ‘reformatory’ effect on the boys committed to […]

Abandoned Batman Nightclub, Thailand [VIDEO]

Before it became derelict, the Abandoned Batman Nightclub in Thailand was a significant hotspot for locals, tourists, underage drinkers and pimps. However, after its novel inception in 1994, it only operated for a mere 18 months. This building was amazing to walk through. It was huge and so spacious. There was an extremely high elevator […]

Abandoned Planes in Bangkok, Thailand [VIDEO]

My flight from Bangkok to Ireland was delayed by 18 hours, so of course, I took the opportunity to do a bit of exploring. But instead of photographing an abandoned building, this time I was after a double-decker Boeing 747 plane! I got a taxi to the area that I knew the planes were in […]

Abandoned Lideco Bắc 32 Mansions, Hanoi, Vietnam [VIDEO]

Towering brick buildings, thin staircases, and stone floors covered in algae represent the failed mansion project that was once supposed to house the elite in Hanoi. The ghost town of Lideco Bắc 32 is to date, the largest abandoned site I’ve ever seen. Between 2008 and 2013, the bare bones of 650 French-style mansions were […]

Urbex on the Hai Van Pass, Vietnam

Abandoned Franciscan Mission Ruins, Dalat, Vietnam

The stunning Franciscaines Misionnaires de Marie ruins caught my eye when I was driving around Dalat on the back of a motorbike. An urban explorer always spots an abandoned building from far away! As I wasn’t sure about the safety of heading into abandoned buildings in Vietnam alone, I hired a bike and an English […]

Abandoned Broadway Hotel, Brisbane, Australia

The abandoned Broadway Hotel in Brisbane has been protected by the Queensland Heritage Register since 1992, but that hasn’t deterred arsonists, graffiti artists, squatters and urban exploring photographers like me! 🙂  Sadly, the building has been destroyed by three fires and much of the structure, walls and ceilings are totally dilapidated. The ground floor is […]
