New Norcia, in Western Australia is a monastic town with a unique heritage. Founded in 1847 by Spanish Benedictine Monks, the town has had many purposes; a mission, a monastery, a provider of education and now as a place of spiritual retreat. 27 of its buildings are listed on the National Heritage List.

The first fifty years of New Norcia’s history are dominated by the towering figure of Bishop Rosendo Salvado (1814 – 1900). Salvado spent 54 years of his life making New Norcia one of the most progressive and successful missions in Australian history. Salvado’s original vision was to create, among the indigenous peoples of the Victoria Plains, a Christian, largely self-sufficient village based on agriculture.

This old dray stands in the grounds of New Norcia as a relic of those pioneer times.

This shot was taken with my Pentax k-r on 21 October 2012.
