1960s Hobart Railway Roundabout restoration complete!
I've got some great news to share; the iconic 1960s Railway Roundabout in Hobart has been restored after being out action since the late 1990's. Back in a blog post I did on the fountain in 2009, I said "Turn it back on and let the water flow!" Thankfully the fountain has been resorted faithfully and there have been new art installations that echo 1960s design. The fountain is one of the first iconic symbols you see as you enter Hobart along the Brooker Highway and it's a wonderful that Modernist design such as the Railway Roundabout fountain is being recognised as important.
