Exploring an abandoned roller skating rink in Red Hills, Queensland. The Skate Arena had been up and running since the 1920’s until it was destroyed by fire in 2002. Since then what remains of the roof is collapsing, weeds are climbing through the remains and it appears to have seen it’s fair share of graffiti artists.

With roller skates and wheels still lying around the site, it was an eerie feeling quietly exploring the rink. I loved every minute of it!

    Great pics and great memento, even if noone loves it enough to care for it any more. BTW the suburb is Red Hill 🙂

    I need to get in there. I used to train at Skate Arena, Red Hill. Seeing it like this is heartbreaking.
