Goulburn Region…
Goulburn is Australia’s first inland city. It was declared a city in March 1863 when Queen Victoria created the Anglican Diocese of Goulburn. Goulburn is the last city in Australia declared by Royal Letters Patent. However Goulburn’s history began well before this time, and is evident in the city’s many fine examples of Georgian and other early architecture.

Re-live the grandeur of bygone days on a tour of the historic Hume family home ‘Garroorigang’, or the National Trust’s Twynam family property ‘Riversdale’. Take some time to reflect at the War Memorial and Museum that stands sentinel over the city. Learn about Goulburn’s industrial heritage. The city is home to Australia’s oldest industrial complex, the Bradley Grange Brewery, as well as the 1918 roundhouse at the Goulburn Rail Heritage Centre and steam engines at the Historic Waterworks Museum.

Today Goulburn is a thriving regional centre. Its rich history and natural beauty combine the benefits of city services with a country lifestyle. Take your time exploring Goulburn’s country mile of shopping, self-guided trails, scenic touring routes and nearby friendly country villages. A range of attractions and a wide selection of accommodation, including boutique guesthouses and heritage bed and breakfasts choices make Goulburn and the surrounding region perfect for anything from a short break to a longer holiday.
