THIS IS A GUEST POST by Steph Jefferson of Steph’s Joy

More information about Steph and how you can connect with her is available at the end of this post.

There’s a saying that the best camera you have is the one you have on you. Sometimes for me, it’s my iPhone, other times it’s my beloved DLSR.

Sometimes when we’re out and about on family adventures, it’s just not handy to lug around the heavy camera with the myriad of other things that have to come with us.  What’s important is that I have something to use that can capture moments of the event regardless of the device used.   A while back we were in the Blue Mountains in New South Wales. And we found the NSW Toy and Railway Museum.  There’s an entry fee for the museum, and no photography is allowed.  So I’ll show you the gardens where photography IS allowed.

So please let me take you for a walk through the NSW Toy and Railway Museum.

The gardens are expansive and great to picnic in. It’s worth a visit if you ever visit the Blue Mountains.

Thanks to the lovely Min for hosting me on her blog!


Thanks so much Steph for taking us with you on a walk around the NSW Toy and Railway Museum by sharing your photographs!  I’m not sure when I might have got there otherwise!  The grounds look gorgeous!

    What a beautiful place to visit.
    I have a DSLR as well and am finding that more often than not I am choosing to leave it behind as it’s too bulky and awkward to carry around all day, let alone the weight in an already heavy bag!

      Ahhh yes – I adore my DSLR but it was nearly the death of me when we did our trip around Tasmania earlier in the year! I got so sick of carting it everywhere. I didn’t just have to cart around the camera, but also a backpack full of different lenses. I need a good multi-purpose lens. I know the one I want – just don’t have the $$’s at the moment!

    I didn’t even know the Toy & Railway Museum existed. The grounds are beautiful.

      Neither did I Kylie! It sure does look beautiful there and that old house looks intriguing too! 🙂

    What a shame you were not able to take a few photos inside. I think the Museum rules do themselves a disservice. Beautiful Gardens though and your photos of the gardens are fantastic

      It is a shame isn’t it Patrick. I came across similar rules at some places I visited in Tassie. C’est la vie! 🙂
