Geodesic domes

Abandoned Corringie Settlement at Wilson's Patch, 65km north of Leonora.

In the mid-1980s Victor and Joan Isaacs moved to Isaacs' birthplace at Wilson's Patch, a bleak and stony terrain 80km north of the remote mining town of Leonora. The couple wanted to set up an alcohol-free settlement in which their nine children, their families and others could live isolated from the destructive influences of city life.
they salvaged building materials from abandoned mining sites and rubbish dumps and built huts.
The camp seems to have been alive an active for years, and it was abandoned around the year 2000.
