Like many small country towns the world over, New Norfolk became a dying town.

It was a comment on the district that the most successful shops in High Street are the Pharmacies, Bakery, Reject shop and the Huntin’Fishin’Campin’ store.

Now the empty shopfronts are being re-imagined, and the town is changing character. It is a town in transition.
