Leaving Bathurst

image

It’s time to leave Bathurst soon. This town has interesting architecture. It was established in the boom times of the late nineteenth century when there was “gold in them there hills” and the town developed further under the influence of wealthy squatters. Bathurst also prospered through the rural boom of the 1950’s, when wool fetched prices of “a pound, a pound”. Many of the buildings reflect that  past wealth, for example, the nineteenth century courthouse.
Off to Leura, in the Blue Mountains tomorrow.
