I love exploring places I have never been to before. Aussie Country Town Architecture -there is nothing like it!
Here are few pics that I took on our trip on the way up north to the Whitsundays. We stayed overnight at Rockhampton (affectionately known as Rocky)- approximately 615kms north of Brisbane.
Overlooking the Fitzroy River is the stunning Heritage Hotel. This huge and most beautiful building was earmarked for demolition a few years ago, and many of its original fixtures and fittings – doors, windows and some cabinetry – were stripped out.
The present owners saved the day (big YAY!) when they purchased the hotel in 2005 and extensively renovated the 110 year old Aussie Pub. I must tell you that the bars in this hotel were very well patronised on a Monday evening and all accommodation was fully booked.
The iron lace work on the verandahs' is stunning. If you enlarge the collage you will see the ladder to nowhere. Can't work that one out!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
