As a pro photographer, I wanted to visit Allison’s memorial, pay my respect, see her final resting place and the house in which she lived. The purpose of these photos is give some perspective to those who are unable to visit her memorial site, resting place. Also to show the layout of exterior of the home (at a distance). At no stage were any photos of the home taken on the property itself.

These images are taken in good faith, with no malice, disrespect intended.

Thanks again to Robbo for allowing me post these!

Allison's final resting place.  You can see the concrete slab in the bottom left of the picture. There is a drop off of about 2 meters. It would be easy for someone to push a body from off the ledge, imo.

This photo is taken with the pillar of the bridge on my immediate left.  Testimony was given that her body was inside the pillar if you drew a straight line down from the top. When you stand next to the pillar and look up you will realize that its almost impossible for the body to have been dropped over to top of the bridge (to have been found where it was). This just my opinion.

This is taken to the left of the pillar (left hand side of the bridge). I have tried to show  the drop off from the cement ledge I refered to in earlier photo.  Her body was found to the right of this pillar again just to give some perspective.

  1. Thanks for showing us all the pics. only my opinion, but with rain falls & eroding banks drifting debree, ect there are many plausible ways Allisons body could have moved drifted until the water subsided. And after reading the way her jumper was found twisted over/under arms and head ect, Its even plausible he used the jumper as a way swing her to throw her over …… Does seem like it mite have been another involved in the disposal (im not convinced) , yet with the crazy thoughts & adrenaline pumping , GBC is very capable of Murder!…. Also like to add.. I think these parents were very good at not arguing in front of their kids ..& rightly so.. May Justice prevail”

  3. Gerry Rocks, thanks so much for these photos. Best I’ve seen. Clear view of the back patio. Excellent view of the disposal site which I had not seen before. It captures the steepness of the slope and the 2m drop of the concrete really well. Excellent photography which takes us to the scene of the crime. Well done.

  4. gerryrocks, you ROCK !! Absolutely fantastic photography, so much better than any news have shown. I noticed a few people paddling down the creek and also in pic 8 someone coming out from the bushes 🙂 🙂 Thanx so much GR for sharing your pics.

  5. I should just mention (now that I’m fully awake on a Monday morning), at the Kholo Creek I was using a wide angle 11-16mm lens. When you take a portrait shot (long side, short width) (as opposed to landscape short side, long width) you do get slight exaggeration of height sometimes (makes things look taller) as the photo looks longer, if that makes sense.

    The person in photo 8 is Peter Shields, GBC’s lawyer, he came out from the right side of the scrub. Fancy bumping into him 😀

    At 593, I used a normal lens 24-70mm . What was interesting, is that you don’t realize (until you see it in person), the land is evaluated from the road. In all previous footage I’d seen (TV,photos) in makes you think the property was flat in the front.

  6. Gerry is our man.I love the warning up top, we do not want to see these turning up on Courier mail or anything! How did you feel going around to the sites Gerry?

    I would imagine a quite eerie quiet sense and you went about it. Having been to the trial and now the sites spoken of and joining the dots with your own eyes.

    Thanks for sharing these with us!

    1. Hey Robbo,

      Oh yes the warning, well you can’t say that others haven’t been warned haha 🙂

      I felt fine visiting, though you can’t help but think, time did stand still for Allison in both places 😦

      Given that I’m a visual person there’s nothing better than seeing these main areas in person. Negating the slope in darkness would have had it’s risks. I was worried about myself going arse over apex in the daylight/

      As for the surroundings of 593, neighbors property’s the area is very open in spots, the acoustics are good.

      1. Sound certainly would travel! Amazing who you bump into Gerry. careful they might call you as a witness.

        I’m really interested in the acoustics as well, day, then night, in rain, wind. Its a place you really need to know after dark.

  7. Thanks GR for those pix. You are a flaming legend!
    I have often felt a bit funny about your ‘gerryrocks’ moniker but after reading one of your
    posts, I did a bit of research, and now understand where it comes from.
    Funny how thoughts come into your head, and I think back to that rainy Saturday after Allison went missing, and as my daughter and I drove over the creek I had cold shivers. If only she had been found one, two or three days earlier perhaps the autopsy report might have been more conclusive and this conspiracy of silence wouldn’t exist. Cold Hard Facts……

    1. Thanks Little Fish!

      I’ve had the name since I started getting serious about my photography 4 years ago. One day I’ll take over the photographic world haha. Very torn between surf & band photography. Composition in photos is so important, sets you apart from the Joe greats and Joe averages.

      If anyone would like to see my other work go here: http://www.gerryrocks.com very proud of my work.

      I was having a giggle to myself in court last week when one of the doctors was being objective about the facial photos of GBC talking about depth of field. He was 100% correct too in what he was saying.

      1. gerryrocks I did some investigating too & loved your pics!! I am studying photography at the tender age of 50!! I have always loved photography & just want to take awesome photos…not as a job. Very technical & at the same time when you get it it’s an awesome feeling!! I love your surfing pics.

        1. You are never to old to start doing photography Kenmoremum! Definitely technical at times, but just keep practicing is my best advice. Set yourself little goals and self reflect at the start of each year, looking back at your photos from the year before, seeing where you’ve improved and where you might need more practice.

          Quite often it’s the simplest of subject matter that can make very powerful images.

          You don’t need to spend thousands to take good photos.Rather it’s the person operating the equipment that makes the difference 🙂

    1. Awesome !!
      I noticed they have pulled down the trellis with all the plants and thick vegetation on the back patio. they have given the place a good clean up since GBC moved out. I can see what you mean by the house being very narrow Gerry, it’s actually a rather small house. Thanx heaps for what you have done, much appreciated.

  8. Really great stuff Gerry…absolute verification that a picture says a thousand words.

    Two observations. Firstly, that must have been a harrowing descent down the side of the bridge in the dead of night and carrying 60kgs.

    Secondly, the plaque to ABC on the family stone wall leaves no doubt as to who the Dickie family consider responsible…no mention of “beloved wife”!

    I don’t think it entirely inappropriate…or early…to call this person a thorough bar-steward, liar, conniver, wastrel, user, selfish, and I’m sure there are many other adjectives that properly portray the useless piece of Shiite that he is.

    May the bell of justice ring loud and clear…and soon!

  11. These photos of the Kholo bridge crime scene are absolutely magnificent photography. Thanks gerryrocks for posting them on Aussie Criminals, they speak a thousand words, and give a visual exposer of really being at this crime scene, for us readers outside that have never seen this site before, that are in other states, far away from Queensland I like the CCTV Camera shot, as well. I my self used to take freelance photography back in the 1980,s, of historic buildings on the old 35mm slides and the old very large bulky video cameras. When I was a Prison Officer at H.M.Pentridge Prison, it was highly illegal and a criminal offence and a major breach of prison security to take in use or smuggle in a old polaroid or 35mm camera to take photos in the prison. But I covertly once pulled it off and was not detected, which was not easy, because even Prison Officers were subject to a random search, and CCTV recorded and watched cameras on a 24 hour Prison Officer manned control centre, watching all around the prison grounds and this – made taken and smuggling out photos a risky venture, by hoping not to get caught. I was able to secretly, like a spy, take a excellent photo in and from the 5 post security tower looking straight into H.Division and A.Division Pentridge, with the prisoners pacing the old exercise yards. and other interesting snap shots, of H.M.Pentridge Prison which is now mostly been demolished. I have however lost these photos somewhere in storage, but hope to find them again someday. And I will put them on Aussie Criminals for all to see. I only wished back them, their were such small photographic cameras, like the mobile smart- I.phone and the ever so small digital video cameras. I could have took some amazing historical photos back then, inside the old working Pentridge jail . Any way, thanks again, gerryrocks these photos are really showing the sad story of Alisons murder, all the more. A great job well done, on this high profile murder trial. Who needs the medias photos!. These are far better.

  12. I would like to get some photos smuggled out of Arthur Gorrie Prison of Baden Clay on the prison muster, and a shot of him in his protection cell, and see who he is hanging out with in their. I bet he goes into his cell at lock up and says to him self, well I think I have bored the jury into finding me innocent again today. Mr Byrne is doing such a good lob for me!. But then the usual nightly noise and abuse of prisoners yelling in the cell blocks, put him back to his possible real future reality of being maybe found guilty, and spending many years in this jail. Now that should bring him to tears again!……
