This was where I developed monkey-phobia. When we were kids, we had a picnic here and we left all our food at this gazebo. We were playing games nearby on the grass patch when I turned and saw a monkey ransacking our bags of food. I ran to this gazebo to try and chase the monkey away. Instead of going away, the monkey showed me its' teeth, growled and came after me. I ran for my life, tumbling down on the grass near my friends. I've not been in there for a long time. Too frighten of the monkeys there.

hi Daphne, it is very rare that a monkey will attack a human. It was probably just having fun ... their way Smile But I agree with you. They can be frightening when they bare their teeth and growl.

hi Kayes, ya it didn't attack me. It chased me and I was kinda young at that time so it was reaally frightening. In fact, after I fell, I turned to check if it was near me... It was nowhere close to me at all. It must have laughed at me seeing me flee for my life when it actually chased me halfway only. All the same, still scary to me. Smile

Tell me has this place ever been used as a bandstand?

When the RAAF was still here, their band used to play there often and that was their bandstand.
