Today it is Blayney New South Wales:

History:
Prior to European settlement the area was probably occupied by the Wiradjuri or Gundungara Aborigines.

The first European to travel through area was surveyor George Evans, in 1815 and unofficial occupation of the district began in 1821. The first land grant in the general area known as Coombing Park was issued to Thomas Icely in 1829.


Where we had lunch....

The area that would become the town also boasted a mill, an inn and several houses by 1837, and then Governor Gipps proposed the creation of a village to be named Blayney in 1842. His proposed site, however, was about 9 km north-east of the present site in an area known as Kings Plains but once that spot proved unsuitable the Blayney village location was established on its present site in 1843.

A train line used to run from Blayney to the Lime Kilns, transporting lime. This is situated on land adjoining the Blayney Cemetery and is heritage listed. Remnants of the lime kilns can still be seen today.

Blayney:
Hope you like our pictures it is not far from Cowra and well worth a visit and mad for a great day, the hot weather is on the way the weather man tells us 41c in Cowra on Sunday so time to move South next week some time...

You all have fun we will...

We went to Orange City New South Wales today the real reason was I need a eye test and I can say I passed 100% and all is great....


The main street of Orange today... some nice buildings...


Main street...


It is a very busy place to visit it seems to have a few social problems ....

In 1822 Captain Percy Simpson marched into the Wellington District and established a convict settlement which was called "Blackman's Swamp" after James Blackman; Simpson had employed James Blackman as a guide because he had already accompanied an earlier explorer, John Oxley into that region.

In the late 1820s, the surveyor J. B. Richards worked on a survey of the Macquarie River below Bathurst and also of the road to Wellington. On a plan dated 1829, he indicated a village reserve, in the parish of Orange. Sir Thomas Mitchell named the parish Orange, as he had been an associate of the Prince of Orange in the Peninsular War, when both were aides-de-camp to the Duke of Wellington, whose title was bestowed on the valley to the west by Oxley.

Initial occupation by British graziers began in late 1829, and tiny settlements eventually turned into larger towns as properties came into connection with the road. In 1844, the surveyor Davidson was sent to check on encroachments onto the land reserved for a village, and to advise on the location for a township. His choices were Frederick's Valley, Pretty Plains, or Blackman's Swamp.

Blackman's Swamp was chosen, and it was proclaimed a village and named Orange by Major Thomas Mitchell in 1846 in honour of Prince William of Orange. At nearby Ophir, a significant gold find in Australia was made in 1851, resulting in a sporadic population movement which is known as the Australian gold rush. Additional gold finds in nearby areas led to the establishment of Orange as a central trading centre for the gold.

The growth of Orange continued as the conditions were well suited for agriculture, and in 1860 it was proclaimed a municipality. The railway from Sydney reached Orange in 1877. In 1946, 100 years after it was first being established as a village, Orange was proclaimed as a minor city.

I am really late tonight we did a 200km drive today Cowra to Orange and back...

Enjoyed today, you all have fun....

Gooloogong is a village located in central New South Wales, Australia. At the 2011 census, Gooloogong and the surrounding area had a population of 295.


Outside the Post Office in Gooloogong 2805...

Gooloogong is mostly in Cowra Shire, although some of it is in Forbes Shire. The village is located almost midway between the towns of Cowra and Forbes on the Lachlan Valley Way. It is close to the historic township of Canowindra and the Lachlan River flows nearby.


As far as I seen this is the only shop in town and it sells everything want a pipe fitting they go it ....

Used initially for a time by William Redfern Watt, wealthy pastoralist, nephew of Dr. William Redfern and superintendent of the late Dr.'s estates, 'Goolagong' became a pastoral lease held by Irish convict emancipist Edmond Sheahan when the new district of Lachlan was established. Goolagong was originally 22,400 acres on which Sheahan ran cattle.


Old Police Station and still in use, I seen a Police Car out back...

The Robertson Land Act of 1861 ended pastoral leases and opened the land to freeholders. With the advent of new settlers a town soon became established. Devastated after a severe flood the town was re-established a little further, and higher to the east. Little is left at that location as the settlement was relocated to escape flooding. Gooloogong is known for its log cabin hall.

The village has a successful local market held on the second Sunday of each month at the log cabin hall.

We went to Gooloogong just to have a look we found a very small town with a small caravan park that cost $5 and night with power... It is a neat and very tidy town....

You all have fun....

 

 

 

Tuesday 12th January 2021

We went for a drive today to Grenfell New South Wales, and took the pictures below for Three Dots....

Grenfell History
In 1866, shepherd Cornelius O’Brien discovered a gold bearing quartz outcrop. Within weeks, large parties of miners from the Lambing Flats and Forbes diggings arrived. Tents, bark huts and a business centre grew along the banks of Emu Creek. A few months later, Grenfell was proclaimed on January 1, 1867 after Gold Commissioner, John Granville Grenfell, who was wounded by bushrangers near Narromine on 7 December 1866. John Granville Grenfell was driving a coach at the time and refused to stop when bushrangers called him to. He was shot twice in the groin and died 24 hours later. Between 1867 and 1869 over 1,100 kilograms (40,000 oz) of gold were produced each year on the Grenfell goldfields and were the richest gold fields in NSW during this time.

Grenfell was a gold mining town first known as Emu Creek and renamed in honour of John Grenfell, Gold Commissioner at Forbes, who had been killed in 1866 when bushrangers attacked a stagecoach on which he was travelling.[4] "Weddin" Post Office opened on 3 December 1866 and was renamed "Grenfell" on 24 December the same year.[5] By 1870-71 it was producing more gold than any other town in NSW.[citation needed] However, by the mid-1870s gold was in decline. During the First World War, manganese ore was mined near Grenfell for the production of ferromanganese.

Wheat was first grown in the district in 1871. In late October 1901, the railway from Koorawatha to Grenfell was officially opened. Unlike most Australian country towns Grenfell has a main street which bends.

The town's rugby league team competed for the Maher Cup.

In June 2007, the Spirit of the Bush Concert was held on the sporting fields. Acts included the organiser and Australian of the Year Lee Kernaghan, local and international star Steve Forde & the Flange, Adam Brand, Leo Sayer, Diesel, and The McClymonts.

Population
In the 2016 Census, there were 2,573 people in Grenfell. 86.5% of people were born in Australia and 91.7% of people spoke only English at home. he most common responses for religion were Anglican 27.1%, Catholic 25.6%, No Religion 17.9% and Uniting Church 8.5%.

Some 60yr's ago my late mother and late Father took us all to Canberra to see the War Memorial we stayed in Yass for a few day... We drove into the caravan park via this archway, there is a new entry around the corner, you can see the caravan park at far left of this picture... In the old days you stayed around the oval...

Last night was a big night on Three Dots with 103 hits on the website in one day. The counter starts and ends at midnight. every night...

You all have fun, we will that's for sure...

Friday 1st January 2021

The first day of a new years how quick time travels (maybe we need to travel back in time) just getting older I can feel it in my bones... Haha...


Yass is an old town all the pictures taken in the main street of Yass great old buildings..


You have to love the iron work on the Westpac Bank...


And this iron work is even better...


Main street the caravan park is up the hill on the right...


Not only iron there is some nice timber work in the buildings in the main street...

I am going to try buy some new rims for the caravan in Canberra hope I can travel to Canberra on Monday...

You all have fun in 2021 (I do not think it will be an easy time...)
