Nobbys Light House - Backdrop to Change - Newcastle NSW by 

This image was taken from the ruins of the WWII Shepherd’s Hill Radar Station just above King Edward Park in Newcastle NSW Australia. It highlights the changes that are happening in the city. The cranes in the foreground are working on the site where the once grand Royal Newcastle Hospital once stood. A hospital had stood on this site since 1817, during early convict settlement however in today’s society the real estate value far outweighed the needs of the people and so has been sold off to development. The building has now been flattened and in its place will rise apartments to be known as The Royal Newcastle Beach Apartments. The newer John Hunter Hospital now carries the huge health load of the Newcastle and Hunter region. When the new apartments are built this view through to Nobbys will again be partially blocked.

  • Kaz, I should have waited for a coal ship to pass by Nobbys as the world civilisation depends upon 2 carbon products, coal and oil, without them world society as we now know it would not exist..
