Aussie Road Trip - Part 7 - The River House

Welcome to The River House for light refreshments!

Read about this spectacular place here
I can tell you though, 
the garden, even called The Food Forest, 
has 230 different edible plants!

Yummy sandwiches, cakes and cookies.
A scrumptious Afternoon Tea

My favourite - carrot cupcake with cream cheese icing.

After eating way too much we stepped outside... ☺

Beautiful views from the house

Gorgeous horses

It was the first time for the kids to sit on a horse.

See you soon for our next adventure, 
visiting the The Art Deco Cinema from 1936... What a beauty!

Aussie Road Trip - Part 6 - All Nations Hill

The main reason for our road trip to Bingara was to attend the service and watch the ashes of my MIL's cousin Barry being scattered. Earlier this year we went to his funeral in Murwillumbah, NSW and now it was time for the Bingara boy to come home. What a beautiful place to have one's ashes scattered. Truly peaceful.

My FIL officiated the ceremony.

The ashes were scattered by the closest family; 
Barry's wife, his three children, his two brothers and his elderly MIL.

All Nations Hill was Barry's favourite place in Bingara, 
where he often took walks and sat down to think.

The wooden seat is dedicated to Barry.
'The Bingara boy has come home'.

The view from the seat - magnificent!

From 1860 up until 1948, All Nations Hill was a goldmine. 

Stamp Battery.
Such a beautiful piece of equipment used when crushing rocks.

Aussie Road Trip - Part 5 - Bingara Museum

Ok, my weaknesses are old fences, overgrown gardens and lots of flaky paint.
I can tell you, I got a huge dose of all of the above here in Bingara!

How gorgeous are these roses?!
... and the gate is so yummy, don't you think?!

Welcome to Bingara Museum!

Lots happening at the museum grounds.

There was a Morning Tea on the day we were there, 
but we were still allowed to go inside and take a look!


Telecommunication in the olden days - long before smart phones... ☺

Kitchenalia and laundry items 
- my absolutely favourite spot in the whole museum.
So much eye candy!
I'll let the photos speak for themselves...
