Ravenswood outhousePosted: September 23, 2015
Welcome to Ravenswood, North Queensland. Located around a 130km drive from Townsville, this once-bustling gold mining town today boasts an official population of merely 191. I visited with my parents on this gloriously warm & sunny day; we had lunch at one of its two pubs before taking a quick look around its dusty rural roads. A visit to the Historic Miner’s Home from 1868 left me with some photos of this amazing old outhouse:
Here’s a view of the whole site; the outhouse is at the back right of the frame:
I’d previously visited Ravenswood around 5 years beforehand and also took a couple of pics of the outhouse – this was before Toilography even existed! It was a little less dry back then:
It’s well worth a visit to Ravenswood if you’re ever in the area for a true laid-back, ghost town experience.
