Travel up hill and down dale towards Tocal, Hunter Valley.  The countryside is pleasant. See it NOW before the days of urban sprawl. (I recommend inclusion of patches of high density, high rise in the valley)
From these photos you would never know it but this educational institution for agriculture is a splendid cluster of buildings recently recognized for heritage value.
The whole campus was designed and built as one, initially and daringly as a church project, hence the inclusion of a chapel with a tall spire of rather individual syle (largely out of view here). Certain features akin to medieval ramparts are unique that spill out to courtyards and smaller clusters to form inspiring surroundings for aspiring cow herders etc.

I used to go and get trailer loads of manure from the dairy - brings back memories...
