Abandoned buildings, Truganina

Abandoned former business in Truganina, West of Melbourne. There is a higher portion of abandoned buildings in the west, often associated with developers waiting for re-zoning or permits for sub-division. This awkward little pocket of derelict land used to be Plains Grassland. Since European settlement only 1% of Victoria's remnant grassland remains. After its closure indigenous plant Austrostipa bigeniculata (Tall spear-grass) has flourished and is recolonizing land. Typical Western Melbourne graffiti writers on display Prix and Logik from AFP and the infamous Lush Cat.

  1. Graff is amazing because it keeps on highlighting important issues like native grasslands. Thanks for pointing it out.
