    Thank you, Julie, for an amazing experience. This was my favourite experience out of a whole day of winery tours. The tasting experience was generous and informative. We learnt so much about the grapes, wines and industry. Cheers.

    Lovely garden with knowledgeable and friendly owners who are passionate and willing to share information. Bought a beautiful Japanese Maple amongst other items. Open weekends and very Covid compliant.

    Holy Trinity looks modern but dates to 1909 and replacing an earlier church built in 1878. The metal sheet cladding is a recent addition and either covers or replaces the original weather board. The tower and cupola was completed in 1924 and a bell from the fire station installed. It was included on the list of properties to be sold as part of the Anglican Church Redress fundraising efforts but I'm unsure of the outcome as services are still advertised for Sundays and the 2nd Thursday monthly.

    Striking red brick building with steeped pitched corrugated iron roof and prominent on the main street. It was also the first brick church to be built in Beaconsfield and opened its doors to the faithful in 1900. Side walls are buttressed and the lancet windows are a feature of the building. A small timber structure with bell serves as the belltower and is located to the side of the front entrance. The bell was rung on the occasion of the successful rescue of the remaining two miners from the Beaconsfield mine disaster of 2006.

    A sign on one of the pillar supports states that waterwheel symbolises the Bruen Waterwheel completed in April 1880. It was 9.2m diameter, erected on the eastern slope of Cabbage Tree Hill and utilising water from a race was used to drive a 10 head stamper battery for crushing quartz. So successful that the battery was doubled and an additional waterwheel was installed in 1882 and, using tailwater from the first wheel, drove a separate 10 head stamper. Remarkable ingenuity.
    The remainder of the memorial consists of metal sheets with five local characters etched thereon. They are Todd Russell & Brant Webb, the last two men rescued from the underground mine in 2006; Tom Ah Sing, gold miner, market gardener & interpreter; William Daley, prospector, who discovered The Tasmania Reef outcropping on the surface of Cabbage Tree Hill in 1869 and Thomas Cook Just, publisher & editor of the Cornwall Chronicle, founder and MD of British Tasmanian Charcoal Iron Co at Beauty Point and in 1876 the Brandy Creek Quartz Gold Mining Co. He was later elected to parliament and was one of the guiding minds behind the Australian Federation.

    Miners Memorial is located near the RSL Park War Memorial, thankfully the plaque affixed identified the objects that comprise the Memorial. They are the relics of a pumping plant installed in 1905 in an effort to solve the serious flooding of the mine shafts and tunnels at depth. Evidently only partially successful as operations ceased in 1914 due to regular flooding of the shafts. The Memorial commemorates those who worked in the mines 1887 - 1914.

    Simple and respectful. A small obelisk mounted atop a six stepped pedestal and commemorating those who died in both world wars. The initial inscriptions were in respect of WW1 with WW11 added later. The low level walls behind have various plaques and scrolls affixed. There is also a German WW1 Howitzer nearby.

    While this skatepark has a bit of sad history where a young lad died in 2015 ... I think that places like this need to exist. Sadly the young man wasn't wearing a helmet. Young men and women need somewhere to push their limits a little ... and this is one of those places.

    I think that it being near the war memorials is great as well because there is a chance for old and young to mix... the young can learn something about the history of the country and the older generation can see what young people can do on wheels.

    I am always fascinated by monuments that are dedicated to an individual ... rather than the whole conflict. This is a Boer War Memorial dedicated to Thomas Joseph Galvin. He was born on 30th June, 1870 in Launceston, Tasmania to parents Joseph Galvin and Jane Gray.

    Trooper Galvin died in Pretoria, South Africa from fever. Apparently he was well known in Launceston... so it's interesting that the memorial is in Beaconsfield. July 10th was the last letter he wrote to his parents ... by the 19th August he had passed away.

    They put this memorial here because he laid his life down for the Empire.
