Black and White Challenge:
Curving steps into Geelong Botanic Gardens.
These steps are undercover at
Mount Sheba Lodge in South Africa,
but there is only a series of columns
along the left side of the walk way.
Negotiating these steps after a night on the town
would have proved hazardous
in Old Sydney town, me thinks!
A long descent/ascent to and from the Queenscliff beach.
Give Coke a plug time.
These steps lead into the shopping centre
above the Southern Cross Railway Station complex.
Coke must have run out of money.
Finally, The Grand Staircase at Paronella Park in Queensland.
Paronella Park was built by Jose Paronella nearly 100 years ago,
and was used for R&R by
Australian and American soldiers during World War II.
The story we were told was that Jose charged American soldiers one
shilling (about AUD$0.10 cents) for the use of a towel
if they had a swim.
However, the Aussie soldiers were given one free of charge. 😀
The Grand Staircase was built so that river sand could be
carried up to make concrete and construct the rest of the Park.
The plaques indicated flood levels.
The lowest is 1996, the next 1967 and 1934
The highest one is unreadable.
