Some Photos of beautiful architecture in Goulburn

I haven’t been doing anything on my blog for some time due to family problems, but here are some photos I took of some lovely old homes on a recent visit to Goulburn as well as the magnificent Court House.   Goulburn is Australia’s first inland city and is full of buildings of historical interest.

“The weird thing about houses is that they almost always look like nothing is happening inside of them, even though they contain most of our lives. I wondered if that was sort of the point of architecture.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
