Abandoned Gwalia, Western Australia, and other abandoned towns

Abandoned Gwalia, Western Australia, and other abandoned towns
Erin Jordan

Red dirt, intense heat, and hordes of flies; the Australian Outback is one of the harshest environments in the world. But this did not stop early settlers from attempting to make a living in the desert in the search for gold and the chance at a better life. Now the mining boom has created specialised camps with fly-in, fly-out workers, leaving once-booming settlements to disappear off the map forever.

In this beautifully photographed book, author and award-winning photographer Erin Jordan captures these unique places that have been abandoned and left behind. Erin travels through some of the most remote areas in Australia, uncovering forgotten towns and exploring the stories left behind.

Each photo gives us a glimpse into what life was like living in some of the toughest and most remote places in Australia.
