Quarantine Spring Skies

Morning Spring skies over a part of the Point Nepean historic Quarantine area complex.
Opened in 1852, the quarantine station contains the oldest barracks-style accommodation built for quarantine purposes in Australia,
pre-dating the oldest intact quarantine structures at North Head, Sydney NSW, by 16 years.
For more details see HERE.

a sad old world
languishing now in the folds
of scenic beauty
