The historic village of Braidwood
Centrally located between Canberra and Batemans Bay, lies the charming and historic town of Braidwood.
If you are like me and love all things quaint and charming, you are certain to love Braidwood.
Step back into history - and be delighted by old-fashioned favourites.
Historic tea house entrance
For those people who love history, there are antique stores and amazing old buildings to look at and photograph.
We actually came to Braidwood as we were visiting Canberra, and a fellow traveller told me we must come here to eat a custard tart. They winked at me and said "trust me, you'll know what I mean afterwards, but you must eat the custard tarts".
The furniture in the teahouse was really cute and beautifully thought out.
There were merchants in the street selling flowers and fresh fruit and of course, as we had promised, we made our way to the bakery.
Antique buildings at Braidwood
Actually the custard tart did not look nearly as interesting as the other treats on display, however a promise is a promise, so we added one to our selection. Of course, as it turns out, we were really glad we did.
It was delicious, tasting more like a Portuguese egg custard tart than the usual Australian custard tarts. The pastry was buttery and crunchy and the filling was creamy and rich. My husband had to stop me buying six more for the road.
We also had lovely pies, pasties and spinach rolls here for our lunch. They were all good. I then spotted a lady walking out with the largest loaf of bread I had ever seen in my life.
Tummies satisfied, we then browsed some antique stores, the teahouse and some lovely old shops.
