Rusted Relics on Dudley Beach by 


The rusted old coal train relics on Dudley Beach south of Newcastle.

This is near Glenrock Lagoon.

Obviously not a Sydney photo, but I stuck it in the Sydney portfolio because it didn’t fit anywhere else (not quite country).

Country born & bred but now located in Sydney, Australia.

I’m fascinated by the beauty of nature & in particular Australian native flowers & landscapes. I also love colour & anything unusual.
The Blue Mountains are my favourite spot at the moment.

    Top shot Michael … when were you there?♥

  • Thanks Bev. I was there about 4 or 5 years ago. I have to check my diary on that one. That nice lake shot I have in my gallery was taken at the same time.

    Great image Michael. I like the old relics beside the beach.

  • Thanks Mike. I’m surprised they are still there. Maybe too heavy for anyone to souvenir. Thanks for the fave.

    Very nice, Michael. Like the lone runner.

  • Thank you. I normally like my shots to be without people, but in this case it adds interest to the scene. I think he was just strolling.

    Nice shot. It’s not every day that you see train bits on a beach. I figured there might be some relics from the coal mining days lying around Dudley somewhere. I must look into it one day.

  • Thank you. This was taken over 5 years ago. There were a few relics there as well as some tracks visible further up. I had a friend visit there earlier this year but he didn’t see these wheels, so maybe they’ve been souvenired by someone since then.
