3 Coal River Valley in Richmond, Australia

The rolling hills encircling Richmond makes it easy to see why early British settlers were attracted to this picturesque area. The land was perfect for growing wheat, raising sheep and cattle plus vineyards for making wine. The valley and the river flowing through it were called Coal because the mineral was plentiful and ideal for heating their homes. You can experience the colonial lifestyle by staying overnight in one of about a dozen historic cottages in Richmond. Shown here is the top-rated Mill House Cottage. In addition to vintage charm, the bed & breakfast offers great views of Coal River and Richmond Bridge. The house was originally a steam-powered flour mill operated by George Gunning Burn when it was built in the mid-19th century.
