The greatest dunny of them all...

Sharing a fun and quirky entrance to a private residence at Silverton, 25 klms. from Broken Hill, N.S.W.  This proclaimed 'ghost-town' does indulge though in attracting good numbers of tourists.  What an eye-opener; I'm so glad I got to visit Silverton!

This was an Outback Dunny, at the front!  Must add, I didn't use 'the dunny' (Aussie slang for outside toilet) depicted here; I just wanted to give you all a great big Silverton smile for now.

...all fuelled up and longing for that next trip to town

Outdoors Wednesday; Broken Hill, N.S.W.

Hope you noticed I was missing for a while?  Had been having lots of fun, shuffling up a little of the unique red soil in Outback N.S.W.

The end of a day, overlooking the plains near the living desert; waiting on sunset 

..at the Sculpture Symposium, a magpie waits on dusk.

Some random photographs to finish off  recent Sydney posts.

If you're inclined, you can dine up top in the revolving restaurant.  It is noted, "dining time is limited to 1.5 hrs"  So check in, eat up, and then step out for some fresh air onto the SkyWalk, just 268 metres above street level ... feeling a little shaky?

on my way, heading back to the rail-station; ground-level suits me just fine, forget the Sky-Walk.
