Goulburn Information

Goulburn in New South Wales is a small inland city with a population of about 21,000 people. Established in 1833, Goulburn is one of the first inland cities of Australia. Goulburn is also well recognised by its Big Merino which stands 15 metres tall and symbolises that Goulburn is the “Fine Wool Capital of the World”. Locals nickname the big sheep “Rambo”.

There are numerous heritage buildings to see in Goulburn and some of the best to see include the Goulburn Courthouse built in 1887, Goulburn St Saviours Cathedral, (1874) and the Goulburn Brewery, which provides a popular tourist attraction for thirsty tourists.

Goulburn makes history for being the place where the first ever Australian Motor Cycle Grand Prix was held way back in 1924. For motorcycle enthusiasts seeking motorcycle history you can visit the Grand Prix Memorial Park on Mountain Ash Road.

Another great heritage place to see in Goulburn is the Goulburn Rail Heritage Centre located on Braidwood Road. The heritage centre houses the history of steam and diesel locomotives from the past and provides a great opportunity to learn of the industrial working conditions that people faced back in the early 1900’s.

For Nature Lovers and environmental enthusiasts, the best place to see is Belmore Park that is situated in the centre of Goulburn. The park is a very popular spot for tourists or locals to enjoy a nice picnic or romantic day out. The park also makes a great family field day and is complete with picnic tables, BBQ areas, playgrounds and other amenities including wheelchair access for the disabled.

Goulburn is well known for Horse Racing. Horse races started at Goulburn in 1883 and memorabilia of the first races can be found at the Historic St Clair Museum. Every year towards the end of November the Goulburn Cup race is held.
