Millthorpe is a quaint historic village about 30 minutes west of Bathurst. The reason why I love visiting this place is that its like going back in time. Winding streets and historic buildings, antique shops and art galleries...old fashioned sweet shops etc. There are lots of little cafes where you can enjoy a bite to eat and be treated like royalty by the locals ! You can also enjoy wine tasting and even sample the accommodation if you wish to stay longer. There is no city hustle and bustle here & everyone seems to have time to chat. The kids can play safely in the streets and there are lots of parks and gardens to explore. The village looks exactly as it did from historic photos back in 1914 ( thanks to dedicated locals who have lovingly cared for and restored the surroundings). You must come here and enjoy this beautiful old village that is straight out of a picture book !
