Hawkesbury Photo Project – Pitt Town

Over past couple of months I have been making time to photograph my local area as a bit of a personal passion project. Some of these photos I have posted on Instagram but many are just documenting the ordinary and the unique rather than the “insta-worthy” moments.

Today after our usual Saturday morning ride Corina and I spent an hour in Pitt Town taking photos of some of the historical buildings we saw along the way.

Pitt Town is a historic town next to the Hawkesbury River. It was originally the home of the Darug people. Europeans first settled in the area in 1791. Tourists to the area can see the remains of some of the earliest buildings as well as new developments. It is a blend of historic buildings, country life, farmland and new homes.

Along with the historic barns we photographed some of the curious animals who wondered what we were up to. Including this very friendly horse who wanted to be in all our photos and was particularly fond of a pat along with his mate the goat who preferred to check us out from the distance.
