    A great account on abandoned subdivisions, mostly on Melbourne's west. Subdivided in the 1920s but still substantially vacant now.

    It seems the longer it's left the more formidable the barriers get - from railways to pipelines to endangered species. The zombie subdivision paper is a particularly good read.
