This makes me so sad. Ten News in Melbourne just informed me that the famous Pole House along the Great Ocean Road is going to be torn down. The house which was build by Frank Dixon in the 1970s sits high above the Great Ocean Road on a single pedestal and is almost impossible to miss while driving along the beautiful Australian coast.
Oddly enough, The Age is reporting that the pole house is going to be replaced by…another pole house, but smaller. What’s the point of that?
The end of an icon…The Great Ocean Road’s famous ‘pole house’ to be torn down. #tennews
