Huskisson, NSW, Australia

Two weeks ago this building was burnt down by arsonists. A few days later a friend and I went past it while out walking and she decided that since I had my camera we should go take pics…. however, there was a fence around it and some official looking dudes poking around so I wasn’t keen… However, she convinced me I was a woos (spelling?) so we did! We happily took pics until another official dude turned up to take pics… and then the other 2 came over to tell us we really shouldn’t be there… I thought it was funny though, that the dude who had just turned up was using his little point and shoot… while I, who shouldn’t have been there, had the real looking camera…. lolol! Anyway… it livened the day up… hahaha!

    Horrible that arsonists destroyed this building Jenny….but I love your story about your camera and his lack of one…:-) x

  • Hey there Varry… Yes… Bloody arsonists… makes you wonder! But the story is that this building is set back in the bush and is actually earmarked to be pulled down to make way for a modern block of units… being opposite Moona Moona and looking out to Jervis Bay it’s a prime location so will probably be worth a buck or two!! Anyway… burning the building wasn’t enough… later that night someone set fire to the bush behind it as well! Nice to see you … hope we catch up again sometime soon…. : )) xx

    Not to ignore the tragedy of the fire…….but this is a terrific image!

  • Awww thanks Tots…. the building was going to be pulled down soon anyway… but they also set fire to the bush… : ( And there are houses quite close to this building… so there were a few anxious neighbours!

    Great shot…great story…which building was it ….???

  • On the left side opposite Moona Moona… set back in the bush there are a few buildings which were owned by one of the churches I think… and were used for accomodation/camps. A developer is about to build some luxury units there….. : ( Later that night someone set fire to the bush behind the building!
