Neither of us had ever wandered around Naremburn before.

What a pretty suburb, and plenty of history to explore as well. I wonder if current residents know that it used to be known as both Dog Town and Pension Town!

We learnt that Henry Lawson lived here for a while as well as some other bits and pieces.

Looking across the gully to Walter Burley Griffin’s Incinerator 1D25291F-346F-4087-AB4D-FA7CCB8030CE
How many times have I driven across this 1886 bridge at the bottom of Willoughby Road without knowing the history behind it? 2D5873CC-5DDB-480F-A094-315F038F8D51
