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)

the saga continues...


the Pearl Beach Resort saga in Dromana began way back in 2010...
(The old Italian pizza restaurant is being utilised as a sales office - seen in the back ground above...)
But still there seems to be no sign of progress with this project
- other than demolishing an old home...
My earlier posts featuring other signs for this resort are HERE - 2010 (before the house was demolished)
and HERE - 2012...
And now, the sign above notably has no name of developer or agent - unlike the earlier signs...


enigma
progress cast
in limbo


and the sign above appears on a temporary wall...
