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 Enchanted Child

Strange to see a sign for a children's clothing, toys and stationery boutique right above signs for a tax agent at Balnarring.
(Yes! this image was taken near Christmas time! The star added interest!)

The Enchanted Child is at street level with the tax agent above it - upstairs.

That first photo is funny! Like the people working in those businesses never grew up! Ha ha!

Very good juxtaposition of children's shop and tax man. Good find.

I think most little girls would feel enchanted if they received that doll house for Christmas.

Hmmm. Tax agents and GST advice right under the Enchanted Child sign is definitely interesting!

FYI: Yesterday I found an Australian penny in my change. I thought you guys discontinued your penny a couple of decades ago!

You're right - a strange juxtaposition of signs!

So, after spending all your money at the Enchanted Child, you can get advice on how to get your GST back?!
