We are still travelling between Melbourne and Adelaide on our holidays.
When we stopped for a picnic lunch in Portland
a fishing port just along from Warrnambool coming from the Great Ocean Road,Victoria
I was absolutely smitten by this beautiful Mosaic Shell.
I was in awe of the talent that must have gone into creating it.
I wanted to run my hands over it,sit on it and photograph it.
The colours were a lot more vibrant than the photo's show.
Aren't the colours beautifully put together
How the artist managed to make this spiral I couldn't imagine.
I took these photo's while I am still on holidays(one day left)
I thought I would show you Melbourne Central,a railway station and shopping mall
built around an old factory. The main part of the factory with its advertising is still there.(I forgot to photograph that, I was too busy admiring it)
The glass dome ceiling,You can see a little of the factory tower,
towering up towards the centre of the dome.
These are walkways between multiple floors,and the biggest pocket watch I have ever seen.
Although we have been to Melbourne many times before, we had never found the time to visit this Mall. We made sure this time we did.
These lovely carriages are situated around the city.
They take passengers to various venues.
Country towns in Australia have many of these rotunda's,
in parks and like this one in the centre of the main street Ballerat, Victoria
Beach huts at Dramana on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria
