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)

Coopers Inn

 Coopers Inn is a heritage listed hotel on the corner of Exhibition and Little Lonsdale Street in Melbourne.
I love how the sign becomes a window shape.

some warm rustic charm
cosmopolitan Melbourne
breathes some dining dreams

An inviting sign indeed. And the passerby adds to the photo.

Hey Gemma, I saw bottlebrushes in the Jerusalem Botanical Gardens and suddenly started missing Australia.

It's a great sign; based on that kind of attention to detail, I bet it is a great place to hold a function...or just hang out.

the 'Cooper" under the arch is a perfect shape or a cooper!
