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 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.
Not sure what these two birds are. Perhaps corellas?
