Abandoned Leper Colony on Peel Island
QuoteQuote:
Opened in 1907 and closed in the 1950's. The Peel Lazaret was perhaps Queensland's first truly multi cultural community. For
within its small confines were Chinese, Aborigines, South Sea Islanders, and whites of both
European and Australian origin. They were housed in four compounds: white males, white females, coloured males, and coloured females. The whites had individual wooden huts, as did the coloured women, but the coloured men were housed, four to a hut. Peak population was at 82
There was at least 40 huts here.

Wow that ute is decimated, 3rd from last shot is the rocker part of the rocker cover?! Another nice set of HDR's from you

I quite like the wagon wheel with the strong circlar bohek, overall a creepy looking place!

These are terrific - how can such grim subjects be so compelling? The shots of the truck are truly wonderful.

Excellent. Hard to pick a favorite. For someone who loves to shoot abandoned and derelict buildings I'm loving this thread. Thanks.

Thanks Dave! The crab was hard to shoot, you can see hundreds of them on the beach but once you get close they also run away from you and scatter and dig down!

Thank-you VaughnA, i too love shooting abandoned place's as some of you may have noticed. My favorite would have to be the rocker cover.
