Come to the Carnival!

This fabulously frothy Victorian building in Long Street is a backpackers called Carnival Court, which, its website declares, is rated as one of the top 20 party hostels in the world! Designed in 1901 by George Ransome, an English architect, as luxury apartments for the well-to-do, it still stops one in one's tracks, especially when the sky behind is stormy and dark as it was today.
