Bradmill Factory Yarraville Melbourne

IMG_2702.JPG

Miss S is on school holidays and is mad for abandoned places, which meant that He Who Eats All of Our Leftovers needed to come up with an adventure.

He surprised us with a visit to the old Bradmill Denim Factory at Yarraville, which operated from 1927 until 2002.

Melbourne is known for its graffiti, but this place is extraordinary.

Inside the old saw-toothed buildings there is an art gallery.

Inside the old boiler house is creepy. Pigeons flapping their wings made me jump more than once.

The graffiti in the boiler house was a different style to that in the saw-tooth buildings, but just as amazing.

The Tintin in the photo below right is a mosaic.

Some of the larger equipment and infrastructure is still in place.

My knees are still shaking from the climb to the top.

Some teenagers who were also wandering around taking photos told me that you could climb up to the top of the boiler house via the old conveyer belt structure, but I didn’t fancy it…
