Oodnadatta Track in South Australia
The Oodnadatta Track is a 383-mile-long road that goes between Marree and Marla and passes via Oodnadatta. The road itself is still well maintained and can be driven along, but along the way, you will see the ruins of old railway buildings, bridges, and sidings.
There is a well-maintained camping site called Coward Springs Campground with a natural spa for the more outdoorsy types to enjoy.

Holy Land USA – Waterbury, Connecticut
The Holy Land park, which was designed by taking inspiration from various biblical passages, used to be a favorite theme park.
The park was eventually closed in 1984, but the grounds are still maintained, so it doesn’t feel as spooky as some of the other abandoned places on our list.
