Category Description
(no listings)


The Town site buildings are in good condition and have been maintained to consistent standards over time. The Town site also has a high degree of integrity. All the buildings have been appropriately adapted to new uses, and many, including the General Store, Workshop, Club and Workers’ Cottages, retain their original uses. Donnelly River Mill and Town Site Precinct has a high degree of authenticity. The Mill and its equipment is nearly all as originally built and installed, and repairs and restoration work carried out over the years has not adversely affected the authenticity of the place.
