Rose­wood’s streets a pleas­ant walk in time

Gatton Star - - NEWS -

YOU walk down the main street of Rose­wood with your chin up and chest out; look­ing at your fel­low cob­ber com­ing from the other di­rec­tion.

There is no star­ing down at a phone and no zom­bie-march­ing in a rush to a des­ti­na­tion.

The peo­ple on John St, Rose­wood, walk slower but don’t daw­dle.

They know where they’re go­ing and often know the per­son be­hind the counter who will serve them.

Fiona Daw walks the main street to the shops about once ev­ery sec­ond day.

The friendly faces and calm charm of the town have kept her liv­ing at Rose­wood for the past 33 years.

“I’ve seen some change,” she ad­mits. “It’s still nice and quiet which is what I like and the peo­ple are nice and friendly which is lovely.”

The fa­cades of Rose­wood’s build­ings are pleas­antly trapped in the mid-1900s.
