MUHS bus trip to historic Braidwood, NSW

Come with MUHS on our bus trip to the beautiful historic town of Braidwood, on Sunday 10 March 2019.

It’s only a 1.5 hour drive by comfortable bus from Milton-Ulladulla to see one of NSW’s most picturesque historic towns, where many of the old town buildings have been preserved and restored.

The Braidwood and District Historical Society will welcome us to the Braidwood Museum and we also have the privilege of a private visit to Bedervale, a historic homestead built in the late 1830s by John Coghill and designed by John Verge, a well-known architect of the day who also designed Camden House for the Macarthur family. With its stable, other outbuildings and graveyard, Bedervale is one of the best examples in NSW of a group of rural buildings dating from colonial times and is listed on the NSW State Heritage Register. The surrounding landscape is also historically important, with its late 19th century plantings and garden layout.

A visit to Bedervale is truly a ‘step back in time’. The interiors feature polished cedar joinery and a National Trust owned and managed collection of period furniture and effects, which gives visitors a rare and unique insight into the lifestyle of country NSW during the late 19th century.
