Roman catholic church, Hartley
We are starting on a new drive in the greater Blue Mountains today. The plan is to head west on the main road over the mountains and then do the u turn south that takes us past Jenolan Caves (which we visited recently in this blog) to the Kanangara Boyd Wilderness area. I love this drive so I'm going to show you some highlights along the road.
Victoria Pass takes you down the western side of the mountains. At the bottom of the pass is the heritage village of Hartley built in the late 1800s. While this church is by no means unique the town of Hartley is a unique cluster of well preserved sandstone buildings in a village that is now all but unoccupied.
