The Tighes Hill Wilderness is a vacant stretch of land in the middle of Newcastle’s suburbia which housed a number of plant species, animals and local and migrating birds. Once a fuel site owned by the railway company, the block was abandoned and left to harbour its own chaotic wetland and scrub ecosystem alongside Throsby Creek. Recently, the lot has been sold and is being developed. It is unclear what the development is, but at this stage there is a large building installed. The building has no windows.
