Darkes Forest Profile

Darkes Forest, a suburb in New South Wales, Australia, has a rich history that is unfortunately marred by the widespread use of asbestos in its buildings and infrastructure. Asbestos, a once-popular construction material known for its heat resistance and insulation properties, was commonly used in a variety of structures within Darkes Forest. Notable landmarks such as the Darkes Forest Riding Ranch and the Illawarra Grevillea Park, as well as many residential properties, were built during a time when asbestos was a standard building material. The style of homes in Darkes Forest varies, with many older properties featuring classic Australian architecture from the mid-20th century, a period when asbestos use was prevalent. The timeline of asbestos use in Darkes Forest aligns with its peak usage across Australia, from the 1940s through to the late 1980s.

Today, the presence of asbestos in Darkes Forest presents significant health risks and challenges. Asbestos, when disturbed, releases fibres that can be inhaled and lead to diseases such as mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis. The local schools, government buildings, and historical sites are of particular concern due to their high foot traffic and the potential for asbestos disturbance. Local authorities have been proactive in managing these issues, implementing asbestos removal programs and public safety measures. For example, the Wollongong City Council has an Asbestos Management Plan in place, which includes regular inspections and risk assessments of public buildings. Despite these measures, there have been reports of health issues linked to asbestos exposure in Darkes Forest. In 2018, a former student of a local school developed mesothelioma, sparking an investigation into the school’s asbestos management procedures. This incident highlights the ongoing need for vigilance and effective management of asbestos-related issues in Darkes Forest.
