I haven’t had the opportunity to join in the Which Way Challenge in a long time which is a shame because it has always been one of my favourites. An afternoon in Hobart provided me with opportunities to take a lot of photos for upcoming challenges and blog posts. These ones were taken around the area near Salamanca Place, specifically Princes Park which is a pretty park you can walk through to reach Battery Point. There are a lot of steep, narrow streets and old houses because this is one of the oldest parts of the city.
I used to love doing the Which Way Challenge but lately, I don’t get out with my camera much so it’s been hard to find new which ways. This week is no exception. These which ways were taken within 300 metres of my house.
There was an event at the football ground not far from my house. This stretch of the Huon Highway is normally a 100kph zone so these signs were placed near my driveway.
As I walked home later I passed this old abandoned dirt road. When we first moved here in 2002 you could follow this road past some properties and exit on to Scott’s Road but after some time a small bridge over the Kermandie River fell into disrepair and neither the property owner nor the council wanted to fix it so the Huon Highway end of the road was closed. Now you can hardly tell it was ever a road.
At times our visit to Kuala Lumpur seemed like one all day Which Way but Naomi and I will have more to say about that in our Cruise Holiday posts later. For now I’ll just share a few photos I was able to take as we tried to navigate the CBD on the day that a big marathon race had closed most of the roads.
Although our time in Sydney was brief I managed to find a few Which Ways at Central Station and Sydney Harbour.
Another new city and another opportunity for a Which Way. This is Darwin where we spent a few hours. It actually took us longer to sail from Brisbane to Darwin than from Darwin to Port Klang, Malaysia our next port.
It was very hot there so although I would like to see a bit more of the city I’d prefer to go at a cooler time of year, if there is one.
Visiting a new city for the first time is a great opportunity to find some new Which Ways. Our first port of call on the cruise was Brisbane.
Brisbane’s main shopping area is centred around the Queen Street Mall. It seems most Australian cities now have a pedestrian mall in the heart of the CBD so now I can add Queen Street Mall to Rundle Mall (Adelaide), Elizabeth St Mall (Hobart) and Bourke St Mall (Melbourne). Sydney has Martin Place but I haven’t actually decided which is Sydney’s main street yet.
I liked Brisbane Arcade which has an attractive outside and some interesting shops inside. At the end of Queen St Mall is George Street where I was photo bombed.
One of the many bridges over the Brisbane River is the Story Bridge, named after a public servant it is the longest cantilever bridge in Australia and was designed by the same man who designed the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Finally another view of the Brisbane River with some of its bridges which was taken from the Brisbane Wheel at Southbank.
