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)

will the pier really be saved...


hopeful sign at Dromana pier over a year ago...
The sign has now gone, and the pier has not been repaired...


Instead, these signs appear at any celebrations in Dromana...
The one above appeared at the 2015 Australia Day celebrations on the Dromana foreshore...


a humble old pier
visitors and locals unite
to save a treasure
