When we travelled the Blackgate Road in January 2011, this shack was for sale for $1,500. We weren't sure if that was a bargain!
The other weekend, we went past again. The sign was gone and the shack was looking rougher.
We've since learned that the former owner had died.
On the way back from Thargomindah we stopped for a quick look around.
I'd hoped to take some more photos but was a bit subdued by the rubbish that had been left to rot away.
The wild goats obviously now used the shack as a resting area, which probably explains the somewhat funky smell surrounding the area.
I wondered about the lady who had lived here - what her life had been like and whether her shack had once been a loved home.
