George Bolt Memorial Drive

by John Menneer

This fringe landscape is adjacent to a large shopping precinct. I stood at the spot where the asphalt finished in the carpark and admired the Eucalyptus gums in the distance while thinking about the connectivity of these two contrasting landscapes. A pathway enables people to move freely from one landscape to the other, and provides an opportunity for users to experience and to ponder these two distinctly different places.
