Heritage in Goulburn
Named after Henry Goulburn â the British Secretary of State for the Colonies, Goulburn developed into a major centre for wool, and in 1863, it became Australia's first inland city. Today, the town is a rich hub of history, discovery and natural beauty.
Relive the grandeur of bygone days in Australia's first inland city. Ideally located in Country NSW only two hours from Sydney, one hour from Canberra and 90 minutes from the coast, Goulburn is a thriving rural community with city conveniences.
Goulburn was home to Australia's first motorcycle grand prix, which took place in 1924. Today, you can still enjoy motorsports at the Wakefield Park Motor Racing Circuit.
Admire the town's lovingly preserved architecture, surrounded by grazing land. Don't miss the views from Rocky Hill Lookout and the War Memorial and sample traditional ale at Old Goulburn Brewery, Australia's oldest surviving brewery. Rail buffs will love the Rail Heritage Centre at the old Roundhouse and old steam engines at the Historic Waterworks facility.
A great way to discover local heritage is on a guided walking tour for five or more people, or try a spooky ghost tour, where you'll get familiar with an orphanage, one of Australia's oldest cemeteries and several local ghosts!
