Most people soak up the history in Gulgong, admiring the well kept old buildings, the shop verandahs, the convict built gutter stones, the quaint picket fenced cottages. Most people soak up the history, it was the childhood home of poet Henry Lawson, it was the town featured on the first $10 note.

We spent an hour trawling the shelves in Stacks buying soaps, a new roasting fork and macrame cotton as we listened to the footsteps of the grocery shoppers above our heads.
