What a magic place Goulburn is. To get the most out of Goulburn be sure to allow a few days. Goulburn is the first Australian inland city, driven via rail and rural jail industries. The city is old and for the most part looking after that heritage.
Goulburn was named by surveyor Henry Goulburn, Under-Secretary for War and the Colonies.
The first recorded settler in Goulburn established 'Strathallan' in 1825 (on the site of the present Police Academy) and a town was originally surveyed in 1828, although moved to the present site of the city in 1833.
It has a central park and many historic buildings, including old houses near the railway station on Sloane Street and two 19th-century cathedrals. It is home to the Big Merino, the world's largest concrete sheep.
The Goulburn War Memorial and Museum on Memorial Hill likewise is a fantastic soldier acknowledgment. Allow plenty of time because this one of the top ten memorials in Australia. Cenotaphs are also at the cbd gardens.
