The Mittagong Maltings - Abandoned Brewery

I have been wanting to visit this place for nearly a year since first finding out about it. The Mittagong Maltings is an abandoned brewery that opened back in 1899 and finally closed its doors in 1980. The brewery is a series of 3 buildings named Malting House 1, 2 and 3. 1 and 2 were the first to be built with Malting House 3 built across the river about 6 years later. It is a mirror image to Malting House 1.

There are a 5 different levels to Malting House 1 and 3, each accessible by a number of dodgy staircases and holes in the wooden floor are everywhere. Definitely the most challenging place I have explored to date, but also one of the most exciting.
