My next trip is not a journey as such but rather a road we travel often. I am going to post from each of the towns along the route from our Blue Mountains home to our property at Clandulla and then go on to Mudgee.
The first town is Hartley, a historic town just west of the mountains. It is pretty much a ghost town, though there are some residents and the buildings are intact rather than ramshackle ruins because it's maintained as a historic site by the NSW Parks and Wildlife Service.
It is a very attractive settlement because their are sandstone buildings dating back to the 1830s plus buildings of other materials built over the active life of the town.
Visit Hartley over at 100 Towns.
