Australia's convict past

Port Arthur, Tasmania

From the early 1830s until the 1850s Port Arthur was a penal colony and what remains of the penitentiary is today one of Tasmania's main attractions. I find the contrast between the beautiful landscape and the dark history of the place quite fascinating.

Weird architecture

Federation Square, Melbourne

Some people love that building, some people loathe it... I belong to neither group :)

Nights in color

Hotel So, Christchurch

"... what is special about Hotel SO is the location. Not so much the central Christchurch position, but the fact that it is in the building that once housed the inland revenue department that pursued developer Dave Henderson into bankruptcy." Read the full story here.

Work in progress

I was in Brisbane at the weekend and next time I'm in town I'll make sure I go back to 641 Ann Street to check out this facade. Hanging baskets .. that's a pretty cool idea!

Three Wise Monkeys

Seen in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane

The painted traffic signal boxes make an interesting feature in the streets of Brisbane. It's a great way to transform these dull but useful objects and brighten up the urban landscape and this one could be one of my favourite. Here's a few others...

You can find out more about the TSBs here, with lots more pix.

The smell of Tasmania

Salamanca Market, Hobart, Tasmania

Tasmania is a major producer of lavender and by-products come in many forms: the usual essential oil, body lotion, soap, lip balm, sachets but also ... tea! Being a tea lover I had to try and I must admit, it has a strange taste.
