Historic Richmond

About 35 minutes from home and nestled in the Coal River Valley, this classified historic town is famous for its Georgian architecture. It contains Australia’s oldest freestone road bridge, the oldest Roman Catholic Church and the best preserved convict gaol. Some of the stone buildings now house galleries, teashops, craft boutiques and museums. Hope you enjoy these photos.

Don't ask me why these numbers were in this yard but they tickled my interest.

This old country home appealed to me when I spotted it in the distance.

  1. Lovely Deb. We had the pleasure of visiting Richmond once and picnicked on the lawns right by the bridge in your second photo. The children were babies and we fed the ducks. Happy memories.
    Love all your photos :D)
