Arts, history and heritage in Braidwood
Braidwood was the first town to be listed on the NSW State Heritage register. Today, you can tour the town on a self-guided heritage walk and see dozens of impressive historic buildings dating from the gold-rush days.
This pretty Country NSW town, 88 km east of Canberra, has historic Georgian buildings, beautiful old stone churches, 100-year-old oak trees, and craft and antique shops. The town is an artistic hub, with the studios of artists, potters, ironworkers, craftspeople and fashion designers all based in the town's historic buildings.
There are plenty of things to see and do in and around Braidwood. Browse through galleries, antique shops and craft stores, learn about the gold-rush era at the Braidwood Museum or have a beer at the Royal Mail Hotel.
Nearby are waterfalls, bushwalking trails, caves, and native flora and fauna in the surrounding national parks. Close by in the wider Queanbeyan area, you'll find some sensational galleries, museums and heritage locations. The region has a busy calendar of events, too, so check it out before you leave â the popular Queanbeyan Regatta is a must-see.
