Hazeldene General Store
Stop here for a coffee break
Pay homage to Strath Creek's general store which was destroyed by fire last year. A sad lost for the local community.

Reedy Creek Homestead
Detour to see the historic 1850s Reedy Creek Homestead. The weatherboard homestead is in poor condition but its humble exterior belies the elaborate embellishment of its interior featuring stencilled, painted and adpressed leather decoration.
