The Big Top, Sunshine Coast.

The Big Top on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.

The Big Top on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland has been renovated and was closed when we visited in 2016, but open once again and certainly revamped with some shops gone and new ones taken their place. My phone took the photos and it is very nice inside much improved from before.

We are still some distance from Melbourne in Victoria then on the ship and home to Tasmania in Winter 2017.






Below is the view from the carpark



Still some distance from home and you can see where we've been further north in winter 2017.

    1. The renovations/rebuild has been going on for some time, it certainly looks so much better now it's finished.

  3. Woolworths... I haven't seen one in decades. They went extinct here a long time ago.

  5. A great shopping venue - is Woolworths a grocery store or like the original Woolworths which sold everything?

  6. As several have already commented I was interested to see the name Woolworths. They went out of business in North America years ago, and I believe in Britain too. Perhaps it’s a local chain that just happens to have the same name.

    1. Woolworths has nothing to do with the American or British company.
      Our Woolworths was founded in 1924....hope that helps.

  7. When we first moved to the area we're in now-- 30 years ago-- there was still a Woolworth's on the main street. It was like being in a time machine. There's a sorry looking pawnshop there now. That's a nice, cheery shopping mall in your pictures.

    1. Certainly not crowded, there is a large shopping complex near by and that always has a lot of people due to more shop.

  9. That looks like one of those giant malls you could spend days in without finding an exit. A bit like Ikea. It does look nice though and the carpark view is really good.

  10. I prefer W/worths to the Coles Supermarkets.
    Just because a supermarket chain is no longer in the USA,
    that hardly makes it ready for the 'basket case' department.

    1. I also prefer Woolworths. Our Willie's has nothing to do with the British or USA Woolworths, that was.
