Rouse Hill

Last Saturday, David, James & I went for a drive to Rouse Hill regional park. It's an excellent spot to visit- open space,  hardly any people & brimming with history. There were a number of rebllions in this region beginning with the Aborigines rebelling against the early settlers between 1790 & 1804. Then in 1804 Irish convicts escaped from a nearby government farm and battled at Vinegar Hill. And in 1808 a battle known as the rum rebellion took place-which started after Governor Bligh stopped the trading of spirits for goods- which was a popular form of trade amongst ex-convicts & soldiers. 

It was also a beautiful morning and it was just lovely to walk around. I'm very glad I decided to take my camera along....
