About Goulburn Area
This fascinating region, two hours' drive south-west of Sydney, is proud of its colourful past. With a history that includes explorers, gold-diggers and bushrangers, Goulburn was settled by colonials who forged a city from the bush. Today, Australia's first inland city offers an array of historic buildings, an energetic rural culture and country cuisine. Charming villages in the district include Binda, Laggan, Taralga and Gundaroo.
There are plenty of things to do in the Goulburn area. Take a self-guided walking or cycling tour of the city, go fishing in Crookwell's sparkling streams or Wyangla Dam, or enjoy country cycling at its best on the quiet roads around Gunning.
