Coat of arms
1st Settlement site (and also early 2nd settlement):
1st settlement bridge(?). This was pointed to as the oldest bridge in Australia, but web searches indicate it may have been elsewhere. This one is on the access road to the pier, just adjacent to where first settlement was centred. To the east of it would probably have been the swamp, which was drained to an extent during that settlement.
Convict built bridge from original penal settlement. Perhaps oldest bridge in Australasia. Or perhaps from 2nd settlement as part of draining the swamp?
Surgeon's quarters, hardwood frames prefabricated in Sydney, then clad/walls and shingle roof from Norfolk Island pine
Ruins of original 1796 Government house.
