From the Opera House, sitting like a jewel embedded in the Sydney crown, to the warm northern beaches and, much farther west, to the sprawling red deserts surrounding Broken Hill, New South Wales is diverse and bountiful. But theres a trail of discarded architectural legacies: abandoned factories, homes and public buildings. These forgotten establishments are small footnotes of history left by the most recent occupants of these spaces. Here, the past and present clash to reveal a handful of small vignettes that whisper the secrets of those who came to work and dwell. Abandoned New South Wales points to some of the clues that speak of the forgotten lives of Australia’s oldest state.
