Love Locks at Bondi

May 13, 2014 § Leave a comment

In Paris, the bridges are groaning under the weight of the “love locks”. On the headland south of Bondi, lovers leave their padlocks, often engraved with their names or a message, on the wire rungs of the fencing that runs along the cliffs.

There’s no shortage of space for more locks along the coast walk but in Paris, there’s a “No Love Locks” campaign as the unbreakable locks – an estimated 700,000 across the French capital’s bridges – are affecting the structural integrity of the bridges. Perhaps the lovers need to come to Sydney where they can gaze out to the enormity of the Pacific Ocean?
