Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

lol .... he was something of a popular chap wasn't he ? Probably the closest comparison in USAian terms would be Washington I guess. Interestingly enough he was only here for a few years then buggered off back to blightey but he is considered the father of European Australia.

Now ... in this case however this is absolutely nothing to do with Lachlan Mac.

The building itself has no real maritime connection other than it sits on a river that flows through (or alongside) one of our capital cities.

There is no building in Oz that I most want to visit.

It looks like the Museum of Old and New Art (the Mona) on the Derwent river in Tasmania.

Well done that man ... indeed MONA it is. Bowen Bridge after Lionel Bowen one time Attorney General ... Hawke Govt maybe ? the incident referred to was the collision twixt a freighter, the Lake Illawara, and the West Gate Bridge.

Laurence, all yours.

My whoops ... Tasman Bridge not West Gate .... WG is in Melbourne.

Matilda Bay .... Perth on the Swan RIver .... that's the Royal Perth YC marina to the right. I think.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Absolutely correct on all accounts, TDW. I keep my yacht here and regularly sail on the river and down to Fremantle and Rottnest Island. The Swan river downstream of Perth is quite a large expanse that is popular for yacht and dinghy racing and other water sports. Consistently throughout spring and summer we have a good seabreeze that is great for sailing. Those keen enough sail all year round
The only drawback is three low bridges at Fremantle. All but the smallest of sailing craft on the river have to lower their masts to get access to the ocean.
Over to you TDW.
