Singing ‘Do The Loop’ on Sydney’s monorail

Over the years I’ve visited Sydney a number of times, and each time I make the trip up north, I’ve ended up on the monorail. Back in 2001 the highlight was a cringeworthy children’s song titled ‘Do The Loop’ – here it is for your listening displeasure.

Threatening cracks at another neglected building

On 28th March 2013 a neglected wall at the CUB Brewery site fell onto Swanston Street, killing three pedestrians. So how many other abandoned buildings around Melbourne are at risk of falling over? I found one at the corner of Abbotsford Street and Flemington Road in North Melbourne recently, attracted by the ‘Wheelwright’ and ‘Shoeing Forge’ signs on the facade.
