Headed out about 100km from home to film some old wheat property ruins that we spent about 3 hours searching for a few months ago and did not find them.
With some help from a property owner in the area, drove straight there this time.

Then back to another wheat property we frequent a lot hunting for bunnies.


The countryside is already dry and dusty and the wheat has been harvested.  Considering the Murray is in flood about 20kms away, it's amazing how dry this area is already.

3 months ago it was very green after the wettest winter in a long time.

Amazing to see those vast areas from that perspective. I guess there must be quite a few abandoned properties like that, scattered about.

Nicely documented.    Does appear it has been abandoned for quite some time.  That area does appear to be quite arid.

There are very few left now due to the harsh climate and the time they've been abandoned.  I have only managed to find about 3 worth filming and they are on my YouTube channel.

Someone told me there is a meteor crater out that way, way past the area of those ruins.

Once we have worked out where (we only know the "road" it's near and that dirt road goes for over 100kms) we will take the drone out there.  Now it's summer and frequently over 40C degrees it may have to wait till it cools off a bit.  There are no towns and no support out that far, so we need to be prepared and we will make a day trip of it.

Sounds like quite an adventure in prospect.
