Wayne and I thought we would do the tourist thing today, starting with our own backyard..
There is a local park that is not too far from where we live and we drive past it all the time but never stop to take a closer look..
Today we stopped..
This is Tully Memorial Park.. In the park you will find these 'works of art'. At night they light up so you can see them from a distance, but still I have never stopped to check them out.. The different levels show where the floods have risen to in previous years, dating back to 1887. This photo doesn't do the objects height justice but to tell you they are made from pylons from an old bridge might help.
The park is right beside the local creek but the park itself is pretty high above that area. When you see the poles in context with the creek lower down, you get a real good feel of how high the floods were in this area..
We found ourselves at Redcliffe, Scarborough and Woody Point area..
One cannot visit this area without checking out the Bee Gees Memorial area...This was so well set up, you could sit on the seats and read about the band, but also listen to their music which is playing constantly..well worth a look..
