OK here's the deal.

If you've ever tried to maintain a blog / website you'll know that it becomes tedious after a while. It's fun at the start and you're full of beans. After a few years it becomes tiresome.

So from today I've decided to make this blog sporadic in updates. I won't be updating monthly anymore (it might be 2, 3, or 4 months between updates).

Also I've decided to handball any abando's that I find to "Urbex Melbourne" on Facebook -
https:/ - so if you're looking for abandos head over to there.

Thanks to all those that have followed or sent in locations over the years it's been fun.

Stay safe and happy exploring...

House, 2one2 Spr1ng St. Reserv0ir. There seems to be loads of empty houses around Reserv0ir at the moment. It's a developers paradise!! Anyways here's just one. All the usual stuff - bedrooms, kitch, bath, etc. There was a bungalow attached to the back of the house. Looks like some junky has been having a party there, there's syringes everywhere. And right down the back there's an overgrown shed. If you're out that way stop in for a cuppa.
Office building, 4three B4nk St. Sth. M3lb. This was the former 3. A. W. building. It's 3 storeys high and has loads of little rooms to explore. The bottom level is pretty dark in spots so take a torch. As well as having office space there's a bunch of recording booths and broadcasting rooms with the mixing desks still in place. It was pretty smashed up by the time I went for a look, but it's well worth the effort. Thanks Jizza for the heads up.

Ch3mic4l Fact0ry, one Gr4ing3rs Rd. West F00tscray. This ones pretty hard to get into and seems to be getting ready for demolition, but who knows how long it will take them to demolish it. It's not a very large site compared to other ch3mic4l fact0ries out there. But there's lots of industrial equipment and largeish ch3mic4l storage silos. There's also a small double storey office block with: office, lunch, and toilet facilities on the bottom level, and lab space on the top floor.

If you're a good climber (which I'm not) you could also jump over the fence into a foundry which adjoins the ch3m fact0ry. It's a 6 or 7 metre drop down some racking and it's the foundry at two6zero Geel0ng Rd. West F00tscray (which appears to be vacant) and runs all the way back to meet up with the ch3m fact0ry.
House, three Hertf0rd St. Fitzr0y. Also known as the "s4nd house". It's a bit hard to get into but the house was filled with s4nd as part of an art installation. There's really not much to see as it's only a small house. Here's a link to an article (click here) if you want to read more.

Sorry folks, I've got nothing for you this month.
I've been slack. Hopefully I'll have something for you next month.
