Walking along the main street of Bangalow I noticed this door. No indication of what lay behind it, and it was firmly padlocked.
The shop to the left was a very exclusive Italian wear boutique. Italian leather shoes, very expensive, hats, belts, silk shirts, perfume. All way out of my budget. But, inside, I could see an entrance way that appeared to lead to a court-yard. So curiosity got the better of me and with a “just looking” to the sales assistant. I walked through the shop and round into the court-yard, and into a Spanish hacienda. Well what I thought a hacienda would look like…
That is the back of the padlocked door. Down the other end of the court-yard was another equally impressive door.
Bangalow is a vibrant, artistic community with a population of just under 2000, but this picturesque, heritage listed village is a gem of hidden talent. Art galleries, book shops, a unique and stunning glass gallery, a shop that invites children to touch and says not to worry, it will pay for any damages. Seventeen cafes and restaurants to choose from. Come with me when I visited and fell in love with this charming township. Take a look here. I know you will want to visit it.
