Stroud was established 1824 as the centre for the extensive holdings that were granted to the Australian Agricultural Company, the first company formed to develop fine wool and crops for the English market. Many of the town’s early convict-built structures still exist.
Visitors can learn of this fascinating past by following the Stroud Heritage Walk that highlights nearly 30 historic colonial buildings including Quambi House built in the late 1830’s as a school and schoolmasters residence, The Stroud Court House, now a museum and St Johns Anglican Church. All buildings are well signposted.
Visit Stroud Newsagency or Crafty Friends in Cowper St. to obtain your free copy of the walk.
