    As Mittagong sits atop the escarpment, many waterfalls are within easy driving range. Notable among them are Fitzroy (first pic), Belmore, Carrington, Fairy Bower (2nd pic) and the Grotto (3rd pic). They are all controlled by National Parks and Wildlife and their office at Fitzroy Falls is an ideal place to start and get information.

    Travelling through country towns in Australia you get to notice that certain buildings have a similarity about them. One of those is banks. They are invariably two storey, often neo classical, mostly made of sandstone.
    Hey, this looks like a bank!
    Of course, with the plastic revolution, most of these buildings no longer house banks. No, they have been put to other uses.
    I loved the old VR in the middle of the year though. It stands for VIctoria Regina and is a strong reflection of Australia's English Heritage.

    Berkelouw Book Store is a treasure. Putting me inside here is akin to a kid in a toy shop. I loved it. More books here than you could hope to read in a lifetime. So many to buy to put on your reading list and clutter up your house but, hey, I couldn't get enough of it. Rosemarie had to drag me out eventually.
    One thing about the store - it's not air conditioned. If you're there on a cold day, as I was, make sure you're rugged up. Although there is a fire where you can sit and digest some of the works on display, it has no effect on the overall premises.
    The store is actually situated on a large block of land out in the countryside a few kilometres south of Mittagong on the way to Berrima.

    This shop first caught my eye because of the distinctive quoins in the architecture. It secondly came to my notice because I remember thinking, "How unusual to have a dedicated quilt shop".

    What to buy: Of course, there's a lot more than quilts here. Fabric is something else you can readily obtain and the variety is amazing, even for a normally-not-interested male such as myself.

    Note the quoins, inside you need coins
