Yerranderie, NSW - a former booming silver mining town between 1898 and 1958, now a ghost town. Access is only possible via one dirt road from Oberon. Between WWI and WWII, the town experienced long periods of industrial unrest and experienced the longest strike in Australian history. It became a ghost town in the 1930s and was officially closed in 1958 after the construction of the Warragamba Dam, which flooded the Burragorang Valley and cut off the main accessible road from Sydney.

Took a night run up to my favourite place. Was closed, but en route I dodged 3 kangaroos, a wombat and a cat #hayabusa #busa #busabro #gsx1300r #burragorang #300club #night #light

What a visual surprise it was to find this lookout, high above Warragamba Dam, on a Blue Mountains escarpment. Stunning!

An amazing afternoon storm coming over from Kanangra-Boyd National Park & Burragorang. This is part of the tribal lands of the Gundungarra nation, an indigenous tribe that calls the Burragorang valley, along with the Blue Mountains and Megalong Valley, their tribal land. #burragorang #bluemountains #NSWparks

Worth the drive! Been a long time since we've been somewhere so quiet. It's rare for me to be breathtaken and seeing this is one of those moments. Thanks @_dheeadventurer for finding and navigating us 😋 #bur#burragorangeconservationarea #burragorang #bur#burragoranglookout #burragoranglookout #burragoranglake #lake #valley #nsw #australia

#throwbackthursday: What was it like taking a drive down to Burragorang Valley before it was flooded for the Warragamba Dam? These snaps from the 1930s were titled "The ramparts of Burragarong" and "Dinner by the river" 📷 Arn McGill #wollondilly #macarthur #history #burragorang #valley #warragamba #dam #community #1930s #lookingback
