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)

just a small train...


two carriage train pulling in to the small Tyabb station...
Generally, we tend to say that there is no rail service on the peninsula...
What little rail track there is requires changing
from the main line at Frankston to the small Stony Point line....
It is just a single track serving a handful of stations on the eastern side of the peninsula...


perhaps small
but a vital connection
to city worlds

lost in translation?...

was, is, will be a sign?...
This odd little board features on a beach box at Dromana beach...
(It seems too, that this is one of the few beach boxes with an electricity connection...
But why is the floodlight turned away from the sign, and seems to face the roofline?)
