Great Western Adventure: Part 4: Sofala

On leaving O'Connell and Bathurst we headed north to Sofala, an old gold rush town.

Sofala was a big gold rush area in the 1850s and later, and many of the buildings date from the 1870s.

Some of them haven't been touched since the 1870s, methinks!
Although there was a car parked out the front as if someone lives there ...

But I could happily live in this cute cottage:

love the colours ...
