Established in the pioneering era, Millthorpe has a rich agricultural history, a legacy of grand buildings, heritage architecture and a streetscape that has remained largely unchanged since the early 1900’s. The entire village is classified by the National Trust and the village centre has cobbled, bluestone bordered streets. Millthorpe is a living museum being home to a community of about 700 people and comes alive on weekends with locals, visitors and tourists alike.

Just love the cobblestone in the street. This to me is the quintessential shot of Millthorpe.

Love these old chairs. Taken at a long focal length for the compression effect and to emphasize the whole street.

The people here are lovely. The man that owns this balcony saw me taking photos of the cobblestones below and offered for me to come up and take this shot.

The people of this wonderful town have been know to solve most of the world's problems while sitting on a verandah drinking a glass or two of the local drop.
