Central Tilba Streetscape

Isn't it pretty.  I love timber buildings like this and the summer cottage gardens are a delight.


  1. Yes, it is.

    Especially for us on the other side of the globe with our more late-autumn-like winter right now, ;-)

  2. It might be a tourist town but it's a very pretty one.

  3. Tilba is a great little town, disappointing about the cheese.

  4. Oh! I do love that picturesque cottage in the top pic and the cute Bakery obviously it has bread but no cheese - gorgeous captures!

  5. I loved Central Tilba when we visited.
    Pretty with just the right amount of decrepitude.

  6. Lovely country houses and gardens and the compulsory Bakery.

  7. 'Decrepitude'. Hah!

    I read all these posts yesterday, just forgot to comment. I have been to Tilba a couple of times now. I like the houses and probably the community spirit, but as with these things, once they go for the tourist dollar they seem less in my eyes. One of the really nice things about Tilba is the valley, the surrounding hills (and rock cliffs) and the way the fog sits.

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.

Royal Hotel - Ganman

And I wrap up this trip with the Royal Hotel at Ganman.

A stark white forest

Actually the poem says "The stark white ring-barked forests, all tragic to the moon" but this white snow gum forest is not ring-barked, nor is it their normal healthy white ... this is the result of the bushfires that swept through the region in 2003. They are reshooting from the base and will recover but it will be a slow process.

At this altitude snow gums grow low and are usually twisted into fantastic shapes. The stuff of many awesome photographs, typically in the snow.
From The Snow Gum by Douglas Stewart
"It is the snow-gum silently,
In noon’s blue and the silvery
Flowering of light on snow.
Performing its slow miracle
Where upon drift and icicle
Perfect lies its shadow."
