The Dry Stone Walls Association of Australia (DSWAA) are holding a weekend away at Bathurst, NSW that ASHA members may be interested in:
Weekend away at Bathurst, NSW, May 11-13 2018
Planning is well underway for a fabulous weekend of heritage and discovery in and around Bathurst. We start with drinks at the magnificent Abercrombie House; built in the 1870s by the Stewarts – pioneers of Bathurst. On the Bridle Track you can imagine yourself as a drover on horseback heading up the narrow track to the village at Hill End, the beautiful Turon River below.
It’s also a rare trades weekend at Bathurst where we could see violin making, photo restoration, shingle splitting, lace and whip making, and much more – and of course our own dry stone wallers; Wayne Fox and Emma Knowles will be in action.
If you stay for Monday you will see Cox’s Road – the original track across the Blue Mountains – and the historic Mayfield Gardens – a lovely property and garden rich in dsw.
