Travel Tips for Bathurst

Old buildings of SOFALA

by balhannah

With a map in hand, these are some of the old buildings I saw in Sofala.

The 1st one is a good example of a slab timber shed.

I still have the brochure, but have had difficulty remembering which goes with which, so have just left the rest unamed, as I may put the wrong description with the photo!

BATHURST HERITAGE DRIVE – 12

by balhannah

“BATHURST CEMETERY”
This large cemetery is very old, and if you like reading old Tombstones, then you will find it very interesting. The plots are in different denominations. There is an old Church here that is no longer being used.
A walk around here was quite interesting.

LOCATION…… Near the Bathurst Gaol, on the Mitchell Highway.

One of my Uni friends had relatives out in Bathurst, so we accepted their hospitality and went their for the weekend in order to escape college life for awhile. We had a great time hanging out with her family, wandering around town, sprinting for the train back to Sydney . . .
