Culture and heritage in Gundaroo
Listed by the National Trust, the village contains all the elements typical of a 19th-century township. Soak up the atmosphere on a stroll through the quaint village â don't miss the old police lockup, which dates back to the 1830s.
Gundaroo is a fine example of a beautifully preserved 19th-century Australian village, set on the banks of the Yass River and framed by wooded hills in Country NSW. Just 50 km south-east of Yass, the town is a great place to relax and unwind with good food and wine and easy touring options in the area.
Several of the town's historic buildings are still in use today, such as the Cork Street Cafe, which originally served as police stables. You can still see slab huts and buildings constructed from wattle and daub, stone and fired brick.
Wander by the town common, one of the few remaining functioning areas of its kind in the State where villagers still graze their cattle. Check out the Gundaroo Store, a restored emporium of yesteryear, with its treasure trove of art and collectables, or take a side trip to Sutton or Murrumbateman.
