The Newcastle illustration features the possibly oldest swimming pool on the east coast of Australia – The Bogey hole – said to derive from the Dharawal name for “to bathe”. Hidden away under an old shopping arcade the original baths can be found. The illustration is also featuring Nobbys beach and Nobbys Lighthouse, Shipwreck Walk in Stockton, Newcastle Museum, Newcastle Art Gallery, Christ Church Cathedral, The Obelisk, King Edward Park, Darby Street, Fort Scratchley, Convict Lumber Yard and the Art Deco Ocean Baths.
And if you look closely you might find the kangaroo hiding away in the ground said to thump it’s tail so the land is trembling. The print is available in our online store here.
