Wednesday 9 November
It was on a chance drive through Paddington, a couple of weeks ago, that I spotted the Paddington Terraces Kooka Trail. It immediately went on my list as a possibility for a Hungry Hiker walk. Research revealed that there were 16 artworks created through an innovative community idea with council support. The Kookas, representing our Australian icon, highlight the unique character and heritage of Paddington. They were a delight to find along the length of Latrobe and Given Terraces
We met early at City Hall and took the 365 bus to Trammies Corner, at the top of Paddington, a charming, hilly, residential suburb.
Trammies Corner is a tribute to the tram drivers who frequented the area during their 'smoko' breaks. A large tram depot was nearby until it surrendered to fire in 1962, sadly striking the death of trams in Brisbane.
