Australia's first inland city, 196 km south-west of Sydney, is a thriving rural community and regional arts centre. You can still admire the lovingly-preserved architecture of Goulburn, that's surrounded by grazing land. Goulburn was home to Australia's first motor cycle and first motor-car grand prix held in 1927. Today you can still enjoy motor sports at the Wakefield Park Motor Racing Circuit.
Don't miss the views from Rocky Hill Lookout and War Memorial or traditional ale at Old Goulburn Brewery, brewing since 1840. Rail buffs will love the Rail Heritage Centre at the old Roundhouse and old steam engines at the Waterworks Museum.
