This Church is a simple stone building for worshipping.
It was constructed in 1853, and was used by the Methodist's for worshipping. It was sold in 1900.
The stone building next door is believed to be Stables associated with the Church.
The Clarendon Methodist Church, now Uniting Church, looked more like a Hall than a Church to me. The Methodist Church, is still called “the new church,” though it was erected in 1875.
It's the only church in Clarendon.
The Royal Oak Hotel is voted as one of the five best country Pubs in South Australia.
The Pub was built in the mid-1800s's, making it one of the oldest pubs in South Australia. It was first licensed in 1855 and in its early days, the pub was a popular stopover point for coaches travelling from the coast to the city. It still retains it historic look and feel, as do the old stables from the late 1800's. Meals can be enjoyed infront of an open fire in Winter and accommodation is available too.
Would you believe this Pub has seen nearly 60 publicans throughout its history as a licensed hotel.
The Clarendon scenic way, is as it says, a scenic drive down the hill to Chandlers Hill and into the suburb of Happy Valley.
There isn't anywhere to pull off to stop and take photo's, so if you are in the passenger seat, be ready with the camera for photo's.
Mt. Bold Reservoir is the largest reservoir in South Australia. The Reservoir was built on the Onkaparinga River System between 1932 and 1938.
It is located on Mt. Bold Road which is located near Claredon. Once on the Dam property, we followed a one way road to the Dam wall where we parked the car and went for a look.
There is a Swing Bridge below the overflow which you can walk across. Lucky, the hard path with heaps of steps, is now closed, so you have to walk across the wall and down, much easier!
Mt. Bold is open 9 - 4pm daily
Gates are closed promptly!
Watch for Mt. Bold road running off Kangarilla road near Clarendon.
