Images of Canberra – Gateway to the Territory

Kerces has been standing on the edge of the Federal Highway in the dark with a tripod and has sent in this night shot of where the ACT begins.

Ok. I’m always struck by how untidy the private flats at Starlight look. To totally ignore this and then draw attention to public housing that is halfway into town, shows the same lack of vision and attention to facts.

I always think we should have an ABANDON ALL HOPE YE WHO ENTER sign here.

but driving into Canberra down Northbourne one gets a sufficient view of the government flats and accommodation to form the opinion that Canberra is full of Bogans, does one not?

Possibly, but they do live in architecturally significant housing.

Dexi, let’s consider your point made and move on eh?

No they see private flats, private house’s, hotels, and buildings first. You could form the opinion Canberra’s full of fat balding bigots with huge mortgages. Try driving out of town and check your rear vision mirror.

Christ, here we go again!

I wonder why only some entrances to the ACT have that big important sign on them? I’m pretty sure teh southern entrance doesn’t have one, and the eastern side certainly doesn’t (from teh Kings Highway). then again, there isn’t one on the western entrances, either (Brindabella Rd, and Namadgi Rd).

Its because the south is full of bogans and its not a good look for the ACT.

That may be true, but driving into Canberra down Northbourne one gets a sufficient view of the government flats and accommodation to form the opinion that Canberra is full of Bogans, does one not?

Its called loitering to commit photography. Nice Pic.

This is the main entrance, as seen by the NCA, and that is why they maintain northbourne Ave and water the nature strip etc, as the ‘gateway to canberra’.

Noice!

Would it be rude to enquire WHY Kerces has been standing on the edge of the Federal Highway in the dark?
