The freedom of the press still furnishes that check upon government which no constitution has ever been able to provide – Chicago Tribune.

The tree or the bench?

2637 sunset tree OKWhy did you put the bench behind this tree obscuring the view of the sunset from Anzac Hill, tirelessly – and justifiably – touted by our tourism promoters?
That’s the question Trevor Shiell, who took this photo, is putting to the Town Council.
Don’t cut down yet another tree, he suggests. Shift the bench, and perhaps put a picnic table in front of the trees.


  1. Keep both; they obviously offer some lovely shade and respite after a tiring day out and about in fierce Centralian sun.

  2. Bob Taylor: I agree. Not too hard to stand up and move left or right a couple of metres to view the sunset where-as the shade is very nice to sit in.
    Best of both worlds right there without being too lazy to move a little to get THAT photo.

  3. Garth Drake: I go up to visitors and ask for their impressions of the place. People from Central Australian tourism should do the same.
    They might get some off the cuff surprises. The most impressive thing there is the geology, but no attempt to explain how it all came about or how Larapinta Drive got its name.
    A couple of picnic tables and a bench seat or two would be nice.
