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)

Wow, what an awesome building. I can imagine the equally awesome view of Melbourne from that point. I must admit I'm not brave enough to go up that hight :(

The view is always better from higher up. I'm assuming there's a fee to see that view.
