Google Earth Network link for known abandoned locations?

So I was shown my first urbex location through unusual circumstances by a chick that is a friend of a friend and she was using a google earth network link that showed a bunch markers of known locations for abandoned places and I think drains as well. I'm not sure if it was just for melbourne, australia, or worldwide.

I don't have any way to get in contact with this girl and my friend is no longer friends with her. Does anybody know of anything like this or where the link can be found?
Everything in the above post is true* .

*To a certain value of 'true'

Doesn't look like the link works anymore.

(Update 26-6-12) Sent some emails to random people and got the map! :o turns out i already had it! :oops: and there is nothing much on the Brisbane tree anyway :cry:
That has to be a case of too many maps I say....... :geek:

I have that file. Funny that. :)
It has been updated many times since I created it. Last updates were just a few days ago.
Bit it is big and messy so I should sort stuff into more folders.
As for "we don't give away locations on the internet" well, where do you think I get most of them from? The Internet.

I disagree! Have added heaps myself as well. I only give it out to those I have met in person though - Seems like the traditional thing to do.

I'm a sure you have added heaps :) I just meant there was nothing much on it to begin with in terms of Brisbane locations

Ah, yeah I got ya.
I think the idea is to add some then pass it on - you might have had an early one?
I cannot access mine at the mo because my 'puter is in storage.
When I got it (the file), it had most of the major ones here, to which I made a couple corrections. I also added about 15 other sites worth visiting, and even deleted a couple of existing ones that were rubbish IMO.

I have this file. Lots for Brisbane, not so much for Perth.
