I headed down to my favorite area in Sydney to check out the old Georges Head Battery. I was surprised by how good it was.
This structure is located just outside Sydney’s main airport. It was built in 1837 and was Sydney’s first engineered water supply built after the main bore well ran out.
The Gosford glyphs are located in Kariong on the NSW central coast and are a well known hoax. The site is still very cool to visit though and a good walk through some nice bushland. The glyphs are located off a trail on Bambara Road or of the Lyre Trig bush fire trail. The site is hidden behind an outcropping of large boulders.
A nice sunset and some rain make for a nice end of the day.
In 2000 a film called Pitch Black was filmed here in Australia. It was filmed near the remote outback town of Coober Pedy. A town well known for amazing opals and it’s underground town. The space ship is the set used for the external shots of the crashed transporter. After filming wrapped up it was left for locals to claim and today sits in the yard of the Opal Cave Shop in Coober Pedy gathering dust. Continue reading The crashed spaceship of Coober Pedy
These bunkers are located near Manly here in Sydney. While called the “Shelly Head Bunkers” they are actually no where near Shelly Beach.
I’ve been wanting to checkout Watsons bay which is another headland of Sydney harbour to see if there were more bunkers to be found.
On the weekend I went for a walk with some friends to check out an old semi-abandoned mental asylum near Sydney. Unfortunately the main bulk of the Asylum was demolished for apartments, but there is still some stuff to see in this now complex. I remember seeing the old mental asylum as a child playing ruby for a near by horrible boarding school. I remember patients wandering around the fences in hand cuffs. It looked like a miserable place and I can’t say I mourn its loss. Thankfully, the older areas still exist.
As you may know I like to go exploring bunkers and stuff around Sydney. Mainly because we are a young country and the Aboriginals weren’t too big on building things so I am limited in what I can see. But its fun and interesting and it gets me out of the house.
