The hamlet of Donnelly River, Western Australia is a ghost town during its off season. A couple dozen little wooden houses line a small gravel road leading the way to a mill which was closed in 1978, a move that caused residents of Donnelly River to abandon the town. I was told that during warm weather months its small houses serve as vacation homes. But during September while I was there, its only residents were Australia’s favorite animal – kangaroos. Here’s a mother and child I met while strolling through this silent ghost town.
