Day 093, Tuesday, 30 June 2009 & Day 094, Wednesday, 1 July 2009


We spent Tuesday and Wednesday waiting in Croydon to catch the Gulflander on Thursday morning. For its size Croydon is a big surprise with a big emphasis on tourism. Many of the remaining buildings from the gold rush days of the late 1880’s have been restored and there is a new Visitor Information ‘complex’ nearing completion. The shady caravan park and its swimming pool is a lovely haven, the pub does excellent meals and the café makes a reasonable coffee. We left with still a lot to see and do, so Croydon will be added to the ‘must go back to’ list. There is meant to still be a lot of gold in the ground with mining companies just waiting for the right price, so Croydon may be a good place to buy real estate.

Zoom into the map and use the 'Satellite' layer to see our new location.
