Bathurst 200 Illuminate

After seeing a tantalising taste of the illuminated buildings while we were at the Street Party we ventured down town on the Wednesday night to have a better look.  It was quite frosty, so we were well rugged up.

This time everything was up and running. Let’s take a walk.

The Courthouse.

May 2015 MH 077

May 2015 MH 081 May 2015 MH 098

The Boer War Memorial

May 2015 MH 112

Ribbon Gang Lane.  We learnt later that this was a silent disco, so we missed half the fun.  Next time we will be more aware.

May 2015 MH 118 May 2015 MH 113

May 2015 MH 125

The old Tafe Building.

May 2015 MH 148

Pedrotta’s Lane.

May 2015 MH 152

May 2015 MH 138

The Carillon.

May 2015 MH 111

In the background, while we were wandering around we were entertained by the Anglican Cathedral bellringers practising.  It added an extra dimension to the evening.  The belltower is glass fronted, so we were able to watch them for a little while. 

May 2015 MH 167

It was great wandering around at our leisure with no crowds.  We are looking forward to the next Illuminate in July and there will be a third in October.  Bring it on.
