Made whilst travelling on the day ferry from Melbourne to Devonport, Tasmania.
Spencer St West, Melbourne
The building in the background, is the Melbourne Convention Centre, and it is due to be demolished to make way for twin towers.
Every time I pass through or stay in Melbourne I go searching for carparks to take photographs from. This was new Little Lonsdale Street, down near the Southern Cross Railway Station.
Junction Mine, Broken Hill
We spent several days at the Silver City in NSW. I was fascinated by the ruins of BHP’s old Junction Mine and Brown’s Shaft. I took a number of photos.
You could not write a history of Broken Hill without writing about the mines and their boom and bust history. The Broken Hill lode was a massive orebody of high–grade ore containing lead, zinc and silver.
This is part of the main road into Queenstown, a mining town in Tasmania, Australia
This was on a plateau near the Queenstown airport in Tasmania.
Olary is an old railway town on the Barrier Highway in South Australia. We passed it on the way to Adelaide from Broken Hill. Its future may well depend on mining—-on the area around it being a new frontier for the development of magnetitie iron ore.
We stayed several days in a lighthouse cottage at Cape Willoughby on our last trip to Kangaroo Island. It was a wonderful location as it was possible to walk down to these great rock formations from the white stone cottage.
