Gold Rush demolition at Dreamworld

I haven't seen it, so i'm only speculating - but depending on how and why it was put up in the first place, it could be just that nobody ever saw a need to take it down, or otherwise perhaps it is there to shield the scene from the helicopters - there may be something grisly left behind, or they may just not want that particular spot shot by the news cameras....

Well there was white sheets there immediately after the accident for obvious sensitivity reasons.

as for the black sheeting you see now, it’s only a guess but I’d take a stab that maybe the entire conveyer was covered in this after the investigation to have it non visible from the air or vantage points based on it largely being the focal point of the accident.

several months of elemental effects (or more likely the ripper storms of last week) have torn, removed some of these.

TRR Demolition: From what I saw on the Buzzsaw, parts of the cave have been exposed while some parts remain enclosed, station area remains intact for now

Dumb bells in the Gold Rush? Makes sense  

Those are train wheels (or mine cart/trolley or whatever you like).

They have also demolished the cave/waterfall near Billabong restaurant in the last few days,

...seriously needs some screening fencing. Unless mud and wheelie bins are a new theme?

You are a bit late on this one, the Hollywood House has been gone since 2012/2013...
