Garroorigang Historic Homestead
An important part of Goulburn's early history, Garroorigang offers visitors the rare opportunity to take a guided tour through a lived in family home continuously occupied for 160 years with its original colonial and Victorian furnishings still in use today.
Guided by a family member, visitors are told the history and stories behind the homestead as well as its people and fascinating contents.
Built in 1857, Garroorigang served briefly as a coaching Inn on the road to the goldfields. The huge iron handpump still stands over the well outside the stables and the bar, where Ben Hall and his gang once ate, drank and left without paying, now forms the homestead's magnificent Victorian drawing room.
Set in beautiful gardens, which include a 130 year old Fortuneana rose growing on the front of the Homestead, Garroorigang retains the warmth and aura of a family home, steeped in time, affording visitors a rare personal view of life over much of Australia's history.
