Sheffield and the murals

Previous page: Sampling cheeses and chocolates

 


We drove on to Sheffield, a lovely little place famous for its murals. On almost every blank wall in town there is a mural – and magnificent they are too.  One mural we saw was two storeys high. The murals have been created since 1985. The area was "dying" as families moved away. Ideas were sought to create something to boost the town and the surrounding areas. The ideas was certainly successful and Sheffield is definitely worth visiting.

Lunch at Rossini's cafe

We were free to buy our own lunches so we went to a place called Rossini’s and bought two of the best salad rolls we have ever eaten. I chose smoked salmon, cream cheese, capers and salad and Ian chose turkey and salad.  The rolls cost $11 each but they were worth every cent of that. We wandered the streets eating and trying to check out and photograph as many murals as we could in the given time.


Sheffield has several shops of interest to check out too.  One was an unusual antiques/bric-a-brac shop and there is another shop that sold a huge range of marbles of various sizes.
Don’t miss this incredible tourist town.
