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)

Polished Gem

Picture pile collage by Gemma Wiseman ~ Here are views of the new look Dromana pier on the Mornington Peninsula.
To celebrate being gazetted as a town on the peninsula 150 years ago, a garden recreation area (more seats for viewing the bay) with a focal yacht "mast style" flag pole have been created near the entrance to the popular Dromana pier.
