Roaming. Pineapples.

Go West on Hunter St and you find yourself in the Detroit end of Newcastle, a district with few people and many empty shops. Following the 1989 earthquake, in 2011 a former popular shopping centre transformed into bizarre markets. The first casualty of the refit were the old fashioned murals, nearly all victims of graffiti attacks. Dull beige walls and insipid advertising signs replace said murals.
