A little tilt- up in the Forest

Oh Kalamunda. You so crazy. Finally Australia’s ugliest town centre turns the corner. It’s like Subi in the hills. ie a craphole.

    That’s more like it.

    A parting shot from the Kalamunda Shire at you LA : here , shove this tiltup up your kilt.

    Nice concrete pump though.

    It will be nice for the locals to have a new vacant building to look at.

    Colonial shedism on a massive scale there Kala! I can really get behind this but it seems to be missing some Christmas lighting or cocii.

    Neo-Brutalist. Maybe someone in local govt. is addressing our economic crisis by re-instituting the window tax. Brilliant. Added bonus: not having to deal with that relentless blue sky &c.

    Off topic, but I know you all love the very latest small bar news:
    Maylands: former Smelbourne journo Steve Lavell spending $600K on new small bar on Eighth Avenue: Henry on Eighth.

    Build it and they will even come to Kalumunda. Its actually the new ‘Convention Centre’ given that the first which is only 11yrs old, looks set for a date with the wrecking ball. Or was that just one of those glorious dreams we all have from time to time and sadly the grey monument to architectural and Council lunacy, remains firmly rooted to its tilt up foundations? Firmly rooted whichever viewpoint you might choose, I’d suggest.

    It’s the new KalaCom war room which will be Hastie’s centre for the war on Ice. Yes, 2016 is the year Kala finally becomes famous. Thanks to the redistribution, Kala set to join Canning – you know, Canning the Ice epidemic capital of WA. Those rusted on Lib voting Kala Iceheads just love collecting stigmas. Asking for ice in your drink at the Kala pub will never be the same.


  11. you'll get wet says:

    Belmont was the Shire. But into Canning the Electorate because somebody wants to ensure Canning remains a safe Lib seat forever. So Kostera Oval will be renamed The Ice Bowl. KADS will teach Meth acting rather than method acting. I blame Day. What was he doing to prevent this epidemic? And I grieve for Mandurah. They actually have a viable tourist industry based on crabs but are now stigmatized as the Ice Capital. Crabs on Ice. How to stigmatise your new electorate and win friends by Capt [ret] A.Hastie.
