Chillagoe was west of Cairns, and had a private railway which was absorbed by QR and is now closed. I rode the line once, at dusk, and the loco kept hitting kangaroos.

Chillagoe is a fantastic old mining centre, worth the drive out from cairns, lucky you Rodders. The railway still exists and the Savanahlander Train still runs on much of it before heading off at Almaden for Forsythe.

So how about the ivanhoe mine kalgoorlie

And this is part of the remains of the famous Chillagoe smelter complex

No new entry from me. I have a lot of older WA mining sites on my list, from my railway hobby.
For convenience, I am bumping the photo forwards from a few pages back.
So far it is something ex mining in WA.

While this quiz remains stalled (9 days now), have a side question for which the indentifier won't get the baton, just my thanks.
This is from a deceased estate, via an intermediate friend. Some I can identify. Some are sandwiched between identifiable photos.
The photographer was Victorian, and enjoyed caravanning, boating, camping and fishing. He had interstate tours.
Luckily, he used Kodak, so frames have a processing date and a number. However, there are lots of gaps.
This one has some Victoria coastal months in advance, and Goondiwindi (Qld) following in the same month.
The architecture supports Queensland, on a caravanning holiday in Oct.1974.

If this doesn't get instant recognition, the next slide is from the same lookout, covering the view to the right of this one.
TIA
Roderick
