The old gaol (above) in Guildford was built in 1840 and enlarged in the 1860s, during the convict era. The adjacent old courthouse (now the tourist information centre) was opened in 1867 and was partly built by convicts.
We recently had lunch in the town of Bindoon, about 80km north of Perth on the Great Northern Highway. Afterwards we called in at the Brockman Precinct, which has this heritage listed Road Board building from 1929.
We also liked this old galvanised iron homestead.
During our recent visit to Los Angeles, we visited this amazing Hindu temple in Chino Hills, on the east side of LA.
The ornate temple has the rather long name of BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir and looks like it was built centuries ago. However it was actually constructed just five years ago in 2011-12.
Towards the end of our one-day stopover in Sydney, we visited the Victorian era Strand Arcade. Built in 1891, the shop-lined arcade was looking especially colourful in the gathering dusk.
While we were in Sydney, we also wandered through the opulent, late 19th century Queen Victoria Building (aka the QVB).
And stopped to admire the two large and impressive clocks hanging from the roof.
Consequently, the distinctive Sydney Tower seemed to pop up in many of our photos. The building was completed in 1981 and is 309m tall (to the top of the spire).
