A couple of hours’ drive, down the Hume Highway from Sydney, is the historic village of Marulan … probably more known these days for its truck stop and service centre than for the facilities the village itself offers. I always stop for a wonderful meal or coffee on my trips – the cafe and restaurant owners are so delightful. Good old fashioned service, and lots of local chat!
Baldock’s General Store, pictured here on a stormy day in November, was built in 1870 by a Mr Cunningham. How iconic is his corrugated iron storage shed sporting the Billy Tea sign! Over that end of the verandah also you will see an info sign – the town has begun giving Historic Walking Tours. It is amazing how much history can be packed into one little village.
