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)

Point Nepean Transporter

This piece of machinery looks like a tractor!
But it is used to haul open carriages for those who don't wish to walk the hilly 6km stretch ~ at Point Nepean on the far southern end of the peninsula.
The whole is called a "transporter"!
So here, do we see a window or a door?

Unique travel mode
Open to fresh air and views
Recycled tractor.

A view of the rocky headland and transporter as it nears the end of its journey.
I walked the whole distance once - one way.
On this day, I chose to take the transporter between points of interest.
Fortunately it has several stopping areas and runs half hourly.
