Yass


We've reached Yass in time for lunch at that nice little cafe.  Yass is a thriving town (population 4,500) and with a pleasant heritage feel.

Let me hasten to add that I will not reporting on every town and dot on the map along the way.  These towns are outside the borders of my 100 towns project.  However, you are likely to see lots more wide shady iron lace verandahs because these places get very hot in the summer.  In winter we are experiencing a pleasant 14C.

  1. Café Dolcetta ... sound like the perfect spot for a break. Wonderful to see those big verandahs.

  2. Lovely old architecture and without advertising banners hanging all over it. A pleasant 14*C !!!! That's cold for a Queenslander.

  3. This is what Pitt Street looked like during the second half of the 19th century. It was lined with lace shrouded verandahs. similar to this. Hard to believe now.
