If you like pictures of Australia, colonial and federation dwellings and civic buildings, you will find them here.
It’s impossible to look at colonial public buildings and not be impressed with the people who built them and their vision for the future.
Major infrastrucure projects from Town Halls, Post Offices, Railway Stations, Hotels and Theatres all tell a story of hope and confidence. Cities like Armidale or Ballarat were better designed in the early 1800’s than places like the Gold Coast in the mid 1900’s.
The legacy of these early nation builders is substantial and their work can still be found in our increasingly urbanised cities.
However Regional and Rural Australia is still dominated by colonial and heritage architecture combined with a proximity to the Australian landscape… it is a powerful and reassuring reminder of what makes Australia unique.
The pictures of Australia you find here should be regarded as an entree, the main course lies waiting you… out there… don’t forget your camera!
