AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

You wonder why they removed it? Too bad they just didn't fix it up, give it a new paint job and leave it there....I bet the area is quite enchanting.


Come visit me today...I have special Ruby Red Earrings to show off for Tuesday.

Here's the direct link:

Interesting and unusual.
Thanks for letting us know about the Signs links. New to me.

Pretty unique! And if only this is not situated close to the road this should not be taken out. Great shot!

I would never have guessed that was for wine storage!!

BTW thanks for making the badge - not to figure out how to transfer it onto the signs, signs, blog

An unusual and lovely sign and well. I hope they get taken care of, maybe get repainted. They are too good to just rust away. Great captures!
