Warwick

Warwick is a short drive from Leslie Dam. It is a regional centre for the large agricultural district surrounding it. Apart from all the amenities you would expect we found beautiful historic buildings, many built of Sandstone.

The Police Station

The Court House

Chimney pot on an old pub.

The Town Hall with an old shop building next to it.

The Town Hall

The Criterion Hotel

The Post Office at the main intersection in Warwick.

The presbytery for the catholic churches

One of the two Catholic Churches in town.

Commercial buildings in the main street of Warwick

The Anglican Church

The streets of Warwick are lined with trees – what is interesting is the variety of trees used. This makes quite a change from most towns where a single species is selected. These are the leaves and seedballs of a plane tree.

This is a statue to honour Thomas Byrnes in the middle of the main intersection in Warwick. He was of poor Irish background and made it to become a parliamentarian  at age 38 – only 5 months later he died of pneumonia. In Warwick he is a symbol for what can be achieved from humble beginnings.

We walked in a park along the Condamine river.

Not sure what these two birds are. Perhaps corellas?
