We visited Forbes in May of 2011 and got pictures of the town, plus this gallery of the former school. There were so many great things to photograph, we decided to put the photos of the interior of the school into this separate gallery.
A green moss carpet covers most of the floor in this damp former classroom.
Saplings have sprouted up through the floor, stretching to reach the sun through a hole in the roof.
That’s the former gymnasium in the background.
