I've been thinking about doing this with some mates but I don't really know where exactly to go. We're all in the melbourne area and from what I've seen online the main places to explore are train tunnels (fuck dat, dangerous as fuck and get fined to shit), underground water drains for rainwater etc (seems dangerous/really easy to get lost, I don't really want to do one of these as a first try), but there's not that many abandoned buildings to check out. There's not many resources to google either as I don't think urbex is really that big in aus, especially since we don't have that many old buildings.
I've got a pretty good idea of what to bring (torches, batteries, phones, food/drink, first aid kit), but I'm just finding it difficult to find a place to start out.
Any aussies got input on this?
Also what would you guys recommend as the optimal number of people to explore with? I think 2 is probably best, to maintain stealthiness but to have the safety of a second person with you at all times.
