There is not a car park cut into the side of the hill at the Shrine, as I said on the 1st of April. Some significant earthworks were underway for the installation of water storage tanks. I must have taken the photo last winter as the poplar tree in the photo is bare. The area has now been returned to normal and new grass is sprouting.
The lemon scented gum replacement of the poplar trees is true though. Just as water restrictions are eased and they can possibly be watered again.
