Immerse yourself in Australia’s first inland city
There’s plenty to discover in and around Goulburn. Take some time away from the hustle and bustle with a stroll along the Wollondilly River Walkway, or enjoy the scenery on the many bushwalking trails located in the picturesque Bungonia National Park.
Experience stories of yesteryear and the grandeur of the stunning heritage buildings dotted throughout the city centre. The Self-Guided Heritage Tour is a great way to see these historical highlights, including some of Australia’s finest examples of architecture, such as St Peter and Paul’s Old Cathedral and Elmslea Chambers.
The Goulburn Regional Art Gallery is a must-see this summer as it plays host to the Archibald Prize 2023 Regional Tour from 19 January to 3 March 2024. Extending beyond this, the Gallery’s Public Art Collection features vibrant murals and thought-provoking sculptures which are carefully placed around the city.
