Another place where we took the high ground in Bunbury was Boulters Heights Lookout. Just climb 194 steps up the staircase in Wittenoom Street to enjoy this expansive view across the town and Koombana Bay, with the coastline heading north on the horizon.
During our recent visit to Craigie Bushland, we also went up and down the two long staircases leading onto Quindalup Dunes. Plenty of interesting flowers along the ridge, including this Native Wisteria.
On the weekend we climbed the long staircase at Manning Park, south of Fremantle.
Great views from the top, across the lake (above) and the heritage listed Davilak ruins, the remains of an 1850s homestead.
While we were in Hong Kong last month, the stairs into the Ocean Terminal in Kowloon (above) were decked out in red for the Chinese New Year. We also encountered plenty of more rustic stairs during our day hikes, like the ones below near Black’s Link on Hong Kong Island.
Here are some more interesting stairs that we saw during our trip to Hong Kong last month. The colourfully painted stairs above are in Aberdeen, on Hong Kong island. The stairs below are painted with town names and years. They are in Causeway Bay and commemorate the Olympic Games up to the Beijing Olympics.
And these stairs lined with comic book characters lead up from Nathan Road to Kowloon Park.
We came across many impressive sets of stairs during our recent visit to Hong Kong, many of them at temples. The vertigo inducing stairs above are at Wong Tai Sin Temple, and the stairs below lead up to Hau Wong Temple.
And of course, this long staircase leads up to the Big Buddha at Po Lin Monastery on Lantau Island.
During our recent visit to Dover, we were amused to note that the local cyclists have to be reminded that they can’t ride up concrete stairs. On the other hand, the local graffiti artists must have a PhD in mathematics.
