Surveyor General Inn

We tour Berrima in the NSW Southern Highlands and explore the old cemetery. The oldest grave that we can find is 1805. There are stories of tragic deaths and drownings in the young colony. In town we visit the Surveyor General Inn, which has the oldest continuous licence dating back to 1834. The low pressed metal ceilings are unusual and it has the feel of an English pub except that the beer is much colder.

  1. I love old cemeteries and the stories they hold. When we were students, we lived near a seaside hilltop cemetery that was full of children, young people and sailors who had drowned. It was a desolate setting and left me feeling very sad but also in awe of the view and the natural forces at work.
