You can read about my 1998 visit to Wittenoom here: 

It's in Western Australia - see http://www.multimap.com/wi/10967.htm for a 
map, which you can zoom out on to get the perspective of the 
location.  There's also a map on the Dead Heart site above which shows 
where a lot of the places mentioned in songs are to be found.
