Plans

Initially wrote this off as satellite imagery made the field appear like the interior of the building. But on closer inspection, this turned out to be false. So I went. And drew up a sketched map, since this was close enough to structures so that no GPS would be necessary to confirm I have been there.

Expedition

Left my hideaway at about 10:30 am with picnic bag and a refusal to look at mapping applications. Walked to train station; realised next train leaves in 1.5 hours. Oh well. I got on there, then off to Warragul. There, it was a short walk to the industrial building (the gate was unlocked), and I planted my colourful plastic tableware in the middle of some toxic-looking grass. This was obviously not the best place for a picnic, so I ate quickly. Then I looked around town, dispatched a burger and the rest of my soda bottle while walking around the center and a nearby park to the south, and then got on the train west... to Port Bay, because I seem to be inexplicably fond of beaches this week. And then I went home, because it was getting late. Though I had to use batteries to find the bus timetables at that point.

Photos

Coming soon.
