Faulconbridge

In 1877 Sir Henry Parkes purchased 600 acres of land here and gave the name Faulconbridge, the maiden name of his mother, to the residence he built. A railway station was constructed to serve his needs in 1877. Parkes, his first wife and two of his sons are buried in the cemetery he established. In 1933, Mr Joseph Jackson, MLA, donated 8 hectares of land to the council for a public park. This is known as the Prime Ministers corridor of oaks where all prime ministers plant an oak tree. Also located at Faulconbridge is the home of Norman Lindsay author of ‘the magic pudding’. His home was acquired by the national trust and is open to the public for inspection.

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
