I picked up my Heritage walk brochure from the Vistor centre, then started my walk.
The brochure is excellent, it covers the buildings erected between 1860 and 1930.
Quite a few buildings had been repainted in their original 19th-century colours, they look wonderful, and the street lamp-style street lighting compliments the heritage buildings.

It is easy to follow, and had good descriptions on what I was viewing.

So now, I will tell you about what I saw, and show you some photo's.

Photo [1] .... ......St. Patrick's Catholic Church which was built between 1908-09. The church was built for the sum of 9000 pounds. The original granite church on the north side was built in the 1870's for 1,500 pounds. This was converted to St. Joseph's School when the present Church was built.

Photo [2/3]..........St. Joseph School/convent, built in 1916. This is next door to St. Patrick's Church. All of them are very imposing buildings, with the Church & the Convent having stained glass & Leadlight.

Address: cnr New England Highway & Bourke Street
