What a weekend, I headed up to Auckland for Labour weekend for abit of small Urbex and family bonding. It's the moment when you get into the car and you turn to each other and go, what Urbex locations are we actually visiting again? 'um I don't know! We left Palmy after 5.30pm, arriving in Hamilton near 11pm meeting Stacey who we had been in contact with for quite awhile, I don't think she knew what to expect, believe she was pleased there was no awkward silences. We all decided to make the most of our Friday night and headed into town, last thing I remember was a bartender telling me to finish my drink and get out at 3am so it must have been a good night haha. The next day we took off for Auckland on the way I took us to a burnt out building in the Waikato that looked like it used to be a rest home perhaps. (see photos) we spent about half hour exploring and clicking away, it's been in that current state he said for year plus. So it's not appearing asthough they have intentions to rebuild. Funny thing, the police where only 50 meters up the road at an residential address while we where going through the building. Reaching Auckland late arvo and our destinations for the day. Sunday, I took a train, when getting off the train at Slyvia park everyone couldn't wait to get on as they where heading to the rugby so I flew out to let 50+ people squeeze through. I jumped in the car and we where off to Southdown, which is the freezing works, which has had multiple fires since it's closure, and now plenty of rubble remains. (video link below) we only spent a little time there as we have previously been to Southdown.
Heres a video from an abandoned house in South Auckland. We'll let you make what you want of it , I pulled out my mobile and started recording because I thought a video would say more then a few images.
