We did a few walks near Eden in the National Parks both north and south of town. I used to live on Ben Boyd Road in Neutral Bay but I am only just getting to know who he was. Quite a colourful character. He set out from England in 1840 with 1 million pounds. At one time he was one of the largest land owners in Australia. A pastoralist, a whaler, a politician, owner of a shipping company and in the end bankrupt in 1847. Here is one of the things he spent his money on: Boyd Tower now in Bed Boyd National Park. Made from Sydney sandstone for use as a private light house but the council wouldn’t give him approval!!!! Nothing has changed with councils! It was used as a whale spotting tower instead.
Do you think your name is big enough on the top Boyd??????He also began building a town with a huge house built to look like a Scottish castle and a huge church that never got dedicated or finished. He was very busy for 7 yrs!
We also went out to green Cape light house.
We also did some walks in Bournda National Park north of Eden. The south coast has a fantastic coastline.
