Australia: Geelong Eastern beach

An even more windy walk along Geelong’s Eastern beach with great artworks; life saver bollards from Jan Mitchell.
Although these works of art might not be that useful when it comes to water-related emergencies, they certainly add bit of fun to this stretch of beach in Geelong, Victoria. The lifesaver design is just one example of the ways in which the local artist gave these bollards (made from timbers salvaged from the town’s pier) a makeover: there are 104 in total with each design representing a key character from Geelong’s past, whether it’s sailors, fishermen or members of the town band.
