10) Burnt Out Miners Hut

A careless match, and what was a timber cottage ended up  a ruin. This is a stark reminder to take care of bushfires.

16) Typical 1800s Bakers Oven

Bakers were able to bake crusty high top loaves of bread in wood fired ovens of this type. They managed without a temperature gauge, thermostat, or fan forced heat. The ovens were usually built apart from the kitchen for fire safety reasons.

14)  Gaol - Inside  The Jail.

The Gaol (Jail) in the Original Gold Rush Colony Mogo between Batemans Bay and Moruya, is part of Batemans Bay history, as it is the most recently decommissioned lock-up of the area.  Previously this transportable holding cell was used in the Snowy Scheme and in Goulburn.

11) Butchers Gallis

The Butcher's Gallis at the Original Gold Rush Colony is a reminder of how beasts may be slaughtered and meat prepared. Most Home Kill on farms is still hung this way, but in more hygienic conditions.
