Abandoned: Woodman Point Munitions Facility

Woodman Point Munitions Facility was a munition dump about 20km south of Perth, which (presumably) opened during World War Two and was decommissioned in the 1980’s.  After being closed down, it was designated Australia’s smallest National Park because of Rottnest Pines growing in the area. [source]
I've never been to a National Park surrounded by a barbwire fence before, but there are few buildings left that look like they could be blown over by a stiff breeze; maybe the fence is there is save dimwits from themselves.

It’s quite a large facility, so large in fact that it necessitated its own railway. Besides from the few buildings left, the area is full of munition bunkers; some of which are nearly invisible in the thick scrub. 

End of the line.

This helmet was padlocked to a pole, left as a memorial possibly. There was a laminated piece of paper attached to it also that simply said "Truly".

Looks like the stiff breeze already got to this building.
