follow thunderbolts way to the historic township of stroud
Part of the original grant to the Australian Agricultural Company, Stroud was established in 1826 as the centre of operations for the country’s growing wool industry. Many of Stroud’s buildings were built by convict labour and today a heritage walk takes you on a journey through the town and Australian history.
Stroud has also become famous in recent years as the home of the International Brick & Rolling Pin Contest. Held in July each year this competition involves the towns of Stroud in Australia, England, Canada and America.
This town represents our connection to the early years of the colony. The main street is dominated by the Stroud Hotel a beautiful country pub. Alongside are cafes and antique shops.
Stroud is the perfect stop on your journey to the Barrington Tops a must do for any Great Lakes holiday.
