Hidden virtually out of sight in a deep cutting and teeming with plant life, this former railway station at Helensburgh, New South Wales, has been abandoned since 1915 when a new station opened 200 metres to the north. Left to the elements for almost a century, the abandoned station is an exhibition of greenery, as weeds sprout from the rails and sleepers, trees overhang the tracks and the moss-covered platform extends towards a forgotten tunnel. Only a five minute drive from the town of Helensburgh, the venue is popular with photographers, railway enthusiasts and urban explorers eager to document its hidden history.
