Croydon visit

While our youngest son was here during his university holidays, we went to the historic gold rush village of Croydon. This is a 155km drive to the East and it took nearly 2 hours to get there. This town has a population of around 255 people.

 I just loved the metal structures at the historic village. Look at these kangaroos and emu.
 

Here are some of the mining acquipment used.
There is a very informative information centre and we watched a lovely mining movie while there. The whole site is beautifully presented and worth a visit.

  2. It is very different with the metal structures. It must have been very interesting.
