Peter Gibney is a photographer based in New South Wales, Australia. His website surfingart.com.au features a large collection of surf-lifestyle, coastal & VW images which are available as prints and digital stock images for commercial, advertising, editorial, corporate and design professionals. Peter has been lucky enough to visit a Volkswagen graveyard that very few people have explored. Hidden way off the beaten track, the location of this wonderful place will remain a mystery!
Peter writes “I located this lost VW grave after a conversation with an Irish backpacker at the Byron Bay markets. It took months to locate and many phone calls to get permission to visit and photograph the site.
When I finally arrived , I was miles from the nearest town and there was absolutely no sign of human habitation except for the sheds and the VW’s The only sound was the wind roaring across the tree tops and the wild life. It felt as though I was in a scene from Mad Max.
I spent 3 hours exploring and took 100′s of photos. The photos below are only a sample of what was on offer. What an adventure, I hope the images give a sense of the VW’s final resting place.
I’ll be respecting the owners request for privacy and will not give out the location.”
