    So, I decided to do my first report of this abandoned high school in Australia.

    I was on holiday with my girlfriend & she buggered up my flight home so it meant I had 2 extra days in Sydney on my own.

    I saw a few places on google/instagram & got speaking to this Australian urbexer who told me about this place. I knew I had to go for it as I'd regret not going while I was here & after searching it was about 40 minutes train ride.

    I was a bit worried as I was on my own, not to mention the snakes/spiders!
    There didn't seem to be anyone around so i just went for it.
    The place was pretty big but I tried to be as quick as possible as I didn't want to run in to any trouble!

    There was a lot of cool graffiti but some of the class rooms looked like they'd literally just been left - with the desks out and books on the tables.
    Also a wall of dicks, which was lovely haha.

    Hope you like the pictures!


    History


    The present day Macquarie Boys’ Technology High School developed from a school located on a site in Macquarie Street, Parramatta.(That site is currently occupied by Parramatta High School and Arther Phillip High School).


    Post primary schooling for boys was provided for on that site by the Boys' Department of Parramatta District School. The Boys’ Department of that school became known as Parramatta Commercial School and in 1920 was called Parramatta Intermediate High School. The title was changed to Parramatta Junior High School in January 1944 and a separate school was formed, still on the same site, with a separate principal.

    In 1955 the name was changed to Macquarie Boys’ High School. At the end of 1957 the school moved to its current site on the corner of Kissing Point Road and what was then called Rydalmere Avenue, which was later absorbed into James Ruse Drive. In 1989 the word 'Technology' was added to the school's name.

    At the beginning of 2008 years 7 through to 10 were discontinued, while remaining year 11 and 12 students complete their HSC course.

    Some really nice images there, but what lens were you you using, fisheye was mentioned by KM, was it a fisheye? kinda spoilt a few of the image for me, but still, the rest were pretty cool! Good find.
