Ghost gate

Craigieburn, Victoria, Australia (Hume City)

24 km distance from Melbourne Town Hall.

Ghost gate
.

Most development in the Craigieburn area has occurred to the west of the Hume Highway. This old gate sits about 100m east of the highway, in an area which has not been redeveloped. It is not completely untouched: two houses have disappeared, there is a mobile phone tower installed at the rear of the property, and a storage area for trains is being built next to it.

UPDATE: The site was cleared of trees, fencing, and the gate sometime in 2010.
