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)

Lighthouse in the Rain


Rainy view of the old McCrae lighthouse on the Mornington Peninsula.
This lighthouse guides sailors through the South Channel on the eastern side of Port Phillip Bay.
The original McCrae Lighthouse was a timber structure built in 1854 and following years of service was dismantled in sections and transported by bullock wagon to the top of nearby Arthurs Seat to be used as a lookout. The present day lighthouse, built in England in 1874 by Chance Brothers & Co of Birmingham, was transported to Australia by sea and erected on this site in 1883.

lonely white lighthouse
do you yearn for diff'rent days
when someone lives there

Dramatic; the stormy looking picture makes it easy to imagine how much it was needed back in the day.
