Australian Federation buildings are characteristically red brick, tuck pointed (bricks separated and joined by a line of white mortar) with slate roofs featuring frilled terracotta ridge capping, gargoyles and false gables. Verandahs incorporate turned timber columns, elaborate timber brackets and finials often depicting Australian motifs such as the waratah, kangaroos and kookaburras. Bay windows and leadlight or coloured glass windows are also typical.
