    If you look closely, you will see three overhanging arms. People BASE jump from here (192m I think). It's the tallest structure in the southern hemisphere.

    My wife didn't like that at all; I think she stepped across once. She let me take the pictures downward!

    Jumped on it until my wife told me off rolleyes1.gif

    I would have done the BASE jump too, but it was late and the wind was pretty strong.

    Giant Mushroom?
    148477190-O.jpg

    Shot this sunday, 4-29-07. I was quite suprised when I was laying on the ground clicking away and here a voice behind me, "what are you doing?" I said Im taking pictures, she said why? I said why not? she said because this is private property. I said, oh well im sorry. Then she said were gonna hafta ask you to leave and took my name. I should of told her they should post it if they dont want anybody there. Theres parking spaces right in front of the thing, its in open grass no fences or signs or anything. Seems to me if they didnt want anybody there theyd post signs especially sense there is painted lines for parking right in front of it.
    Best regards,
    douglas
