Stroud - Mid North Coast - New South Wales

Follow Thunderbolts Way to the historic township of Stroud located on the Mid North Coast of NSW, New South Wales. The Thunderbolts Way is named after the famous bushranger Captain Thunderbolt who is the centre of many tales in this area.

Stroud itself is a very significant historic area. It was part of the original grant to the Australian Agricultural Company, the first public company to be formed in England especially for the development of land in Australia suitable for the production of fine wool for the English woollen mills. In 1826 the site for a township was founded and named Stroud, after a town in the Cotswolds. Many of its buildings were built by convict labour and today a heritage walk takes in 32 heritage buildings including St Johns Anglican Church. Convict built in 1833 it is one of the most original in Australia. The bushranger Thunderbolt was married here.

Stroud has also become famous in recent years as the home of the International Brick & Rolling Pin Contest. Held in July each year this competition involves the towns of Stroud in Australia, England, Canada and America.
