Canowindra – Part 1

We travelled south-west of Bathurst to our chief destination for the weekend, the sleepy town of Canowindra. After settling into our motel, we wandered around the main street.

The residential houses were Edwardian, I think, of the same vintage as those around the suburbs of Ashfield, Summer Hill and Croydon in Sydney’s inner-west.


A few had some lovely blooms on display.


Soon we came to the shopping precinct. With some lovely architecture, I wasn’t surprised to find out that it’s been used as a film set recently.


However, the streets were very quiet, even for a Saturday evening. We found out after we got home that there had been a memorial for one of the victims of the Rozelle fire, who came from here. Everybody is affected when something happens in a town of this size (Canowindra’s population is around 1,500).
