We ambled down the main shopping thoroughfare and I couldn't resist taking pics of this iconic Aussie pub with the vintage posters.

We drove out to Nundle today, a lovely sunny day for a drive in the country.
It’s called “The Cottage On The Hill” a couple of K’s out of the actual town, set in the midst of lovely rolling farmland, where the delightfully friendly proprietor, Kerry Swain, long arm quilter, quilt designer and author of two books and many patterns, holds retreats and serves local area quilters with a nice selection of fabrics, books, patterns and notions as well as her longarm services.
I was fortunate to visit in the middle of a retreat........
My SIL and me in front of Kerry's shop.
Werris Creek station has quite a history of service during WW2.
Two retired railway men, volunteers both, happily answered questions and told us tales of the old rail days till well after official closing time.
I took pics until the dratted battery died and I did not have the spare with me.
My brother lent me his phone but we haven’t been able to transfer the pics to the computer so this is all that I have, sufficient to give you an idea of the variety of artifacts here from the past.
