Forest Reefs #27



1. Forest Reefs Tavern
2. Church at Forest Reefs
3. Old Shop

Back in its heyday as a gold town there were about 500 people at Forest Reefs but little remains today.  The Sisters of St Joseph form Perthville formed a school here which operated until the 1960s. The Church of St Patrick and the convent next door are now privately owned.  A little way along the road from the convent is another building that looks like it was an old shop, perhaps the post office which closed in 1974.  There was a school that closed as recently as 1990.  A hotel is still operating.

  1. It looks like the bush might reclaim the land.
