The Mad Max museum has been featured in many travel shows and they all have mentioned that it is one of those places that is worth stopping in because it was full of Mad Max memorabilia from nearly all of the films. So while we were on a month long road trip we decided that we needed to stop in and check the place out ourselves, and it lived up to the hype.
The day we visited was extremely cold and rain was threatening however it certainly added to the look of the place from the road. The front of the Museum is pretty colourful and its unmissable in Silverton.
There are no photos allowed to be taken inside the museum which has plenty of costumes, photos and videos of the Mad Max film series however you are allowed to take photos of the vehicles which are located out the back which still forms part of the museum.
Lastly but not least the Silverton pub has been featured in many films and is worth stopping in for a beer and a meal. Even just to look at the memorabilia that adorn the walls, ceiling and even the front of the bar.
The glow worm tunnels near Lithgow are certainly worthy of a visit however if you look closely on the side of walking track you’ll see small entrances to other caves that people don’t normally venture into. If you aren’t afraid of the dark and getting a little dirty they will offer a view rarely seen into another world. As we walked toward what we thought would be an exit we realised that our exit strategy would require us to climb out and get a little dirtier than usual but it was well worth the venture into the unknown and the the darkness beyond.
This lady stood in the middle of Pitt St Mall and talked on her phone oblivious to everyone else around here. What caught not just me eye but also the eye of the other photographer was that she was different, different to everyone else.
Lady in Leather
Wandering around the city I stumbled across these blokes playing over size chess. At one point I actually thought they were playing for more than fun.
This guy was certainly an interesting character. I approached him and asked him for a photo ? His immediate response what do you want me to be ? I must have had a strange look on my face because he said, I can be homeless, a biker or a mean dude. He did tell me that he is asked on a regular basis for photos and many people have asked him to be something like a biker or a homeless guy.
I asked him to just be himself.
