The most delightful buildings for me in this little town are its little historical cottages. They come in different shapes and sizes, and some look as if it’s been little changed since the Gold Rush.
As you can probably tell, they’re pretty well maintained and some are even lived in. Although I suppose if you’re a resident you’d have to tolerate tourists like me taking snapshots of (potentially) your washing.

We stayed in an old miner’s cottage in Blinman (SA) last year that looked a bit like no. 4 of your photos. It presented ordinarily from the outside, but was beautifully restored inside and, despite being compact, did us and our friend very nicely.
A couple of the cottages are used for the artist residency program. It would be a great place to retreat to and paint.
