Ups and Downs from everywhere.Victoria Falls joyride.

A Balloon ride over Melbourne.


Not sure if this is the front or back entrance,

but it was captured in old Sydney.

My recent drive up and down

Mount Buninyong

yielded two roads…

one for the journey up,

the other for the journey down.

And in this case what goes up must come down, on Geelong’s Eastern Beach.

Steps from everywhere….

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!

steps_0251

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.

The advertising is no longer there as of last weekend.grand-steps_5550

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.
