Industrial Port Adelaide

Went for a wonder around Pt. Adelaide yesterday, very interesting sights. There is a large ($billions) urban redevelopment project on the books in the south of port, so I decided to wonder north into the industry.




































This one is my favourite of the lot.

YES, very interesting sight's indeed. Top effort.

4th from bottom is my pick. That building is actually quite massive compaired to those little old 18 wheelers

AFAIK it is the old Customs House. It might be one of the neighbouring buildings.

Australia is such a clean country. Even your industrial areas are nice. What's your secret?

Hang on just a moment, hold the front page! I come from Geelong and there are areas of my town that are right up there with the grottiest, Soviet industrial wasteland city. I would compare it with a Hull or Bristol in England in the 'beauty' stakes.

Just gotta get my hands on a digital camera and I will expose the 'murky' side of Oz you don't see in the fancy brochures.
