KooWeeRup swamp tower

 This is a photo of the KooWeeRup swamp tower. I didnt take this photo its off the net. I acually forgot to get one of the tower. I have been driving past this tower for about 30 years and I dont ever remember climbing it. So of course I pick a day were its freezing and the wind is blowing a gale. The following photos are ones I took from the top.
 This is a photo of dear hubby lining up to get some donuts. The are very yummy. If you click on the photo it will enlarge. Hubby is the one all in blue, second in line.
 This is the South Gippsland Highway, heading North and back towards home.
 Looking at the highway directly infront of the tower, this car is heading north.
And the highway heading south towards Phillip Island.
Just a little about my back yard.
see ya

Hello Angela
I'd never heard of this before so 'googled' it - http://www.google.com.au/#hl=en&sa=X&ei=W-EaTrb5OqXFmAX-xrEQ&sqi=2&ved=0CBcQvwUoAQ&q=koo+wee+rup+swamp+tower&spell=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&fp=3272fa42ed90ac07&biw=1116&bih=603
theres quite a lot of history there
Might try to get down to Harewood Homestead one weekend - have you ever been there?

Have been passed that spot many times in the truck with Petal when delivering stock. I must have been *'pecking wheat' at the time!

That's a really interesting structure.
It must've been cold up there.
You got some nice shots from the top!
