Former ordnance factory
.

The former explosives factory at Maribyrnong contains literally hundreds of buildings. This image, taken from the opposite side of the Maribyrnong River, shows a relatively small number of the remaining structures. The facility closed in the early 1990's; parts of the site have already been redeveloped into residential land. Note the low density of building placement, and the surrounding earth mounds which are designed to divert accidental explosions upwards rather than outwards.
