Not exactly chimney stacks, but how many chimneys can you count in this pic from Port Adelaide?



Strange in a way too. I noticed these chimneys today and took the pic, without knowing about this thread.
(surprised really)

thanks so much danubis. im always loking for new brick stacks and didnt know about this one. Now i will have to endeavour to find out all about it. especially its shape (round,square or octagonal) height,age name etc.
I remember last year JOE posted this photo of a 20m+ stack above a bakery in downtown toowoomba near Heritge plaza.

CULWULLA,

Haven't read the whole thread so not sure how specific you are on tracking down 'brick' chimneys... but throughout north queensland there are numerous sugar mills, some with quite largeable stacks up to (estimate) 60 or 70m high.
Being from Mackay, Racecourse Mill (just to the west of the city) has it's iconic red & white swirly-striped stacks. Proserpine Mill to the north has one of the bigger stacks I've seen.

Did a quick search on google for pics but came up with nothing, however can track down some of these mills on google earth when I get home tonight. Is this something you'd be interested in cataloging?

^ that would be great. Im REALLY intrested in brick chimneys but dont mind finding out more concrete stacks for my records. I have a few as part of sugar mills. most seem to be metal stacks. rarely brick.

heres a concrete stack as part of a mill just off Pleystowe mem ave in Mackay

Regarding Pleystowe Pic,

WOW, that brings back memories, I grew up on a cane property for nearly 20 years, not even 10 mins from there. Would drive past Pleystowe on a daily basis until we sold the farm. Learnt to play tennis on a clay court right next door to it, only another 100m down the road in that picture. The Pleystowe stack is roughly about 50m in height from memory.

The whole pioneer valley (west of Mackay) used to be filled with numerous smaller mills, but over the last century those were slowly amalgamated into the 'super-mills' that remain today. Have some great pics stored somewhere that my granparents kept showing these 15-20 metre stacks spewing out steam and dirty black smoke during the crushing season. Unfortuantely, as far as I know most (if not all) of these chimneys would have been demolished over time.

The google earth image is Racecourse Mill... two parallel stacks there, again proabably a little over 50m in height. Too bad you can't make out their candy-cane-like paint scheme

You seen this stack before Cul?


100 year old, 135 feet high chimney in Lester Street, Carlton, on the site of the old "Tasmanian Timber & Bending Co.,".

The two men on top, Bill Finn and Bert Goere, are dismantling the chimney brick by brick as surrounding factory buildings prevent the stack being dynamited; approximately 40,000 bricks in the stack.

here are some pics from mount isa. worked there there for 3 months early this year and got to go up lead stack with an electrician, 'twas quite fun. Lift takes about 15 minutes to reach the top, then bout 2 days later was in gold coast and went up to Q1 ob deck in about 11 sec, bit of difference! you gotta wear whole load of safety gear due to toxic lead emmisions.

dsfenasni - top stuff mate.

If those photos were of glassy office/resi things instead of industrial structures, this thread would have had four pages of "great shot" posts after yours by now.

Are pictures of house/home chimneys alright? I might try to take and post some pictures of the beautiful home chimneys in the very beautiful Adelaide suburbs of Springfield, Burnside and Unley Park.
