Gostwyck Road is lined with Gold - Uralla NSW Australia by 


The Gostwyck Chapel and its tree lined road were the main reason for my road trip into NSW. A lady at the tourism office in Armidale advised me to take the “tourist drive” to Uralla as she thought that I would enjoy it. Little did she know that I got lost and it took me hours to find it and came across it very unexpectedly as I thought that it would be on a side road. I have to say that I was completely blown away by its beauty and I think that it is one of the prettiest places that I have ever seen.

Officially known as ‘All Saints Anglican Church’, Gostwyck Chapel was built in 1921 in memory of Major Clive Collingwood Dangar who lost his life during World War I. The chapel was constructed entirely of bricks made and fired on Gostwyck Station. The stone wall surrounding the chapel was built to protect it from flood waters from the nearby Salisbury Waters. The magnificent tree lined avenue of 200 Elms was planted by a worker who was brought out from England specifically for the task.

The site is a favourite for photographers, especially during the autumn months when the leaves of the Elm trees turn gold providing the perfect backdrop for the Virginia Creeper covering the chapel, which changes to a brilliant red.
