Being Gunning this era is a challenge. Just half a century ago this place was a destination of repute. Wheat, Wool and plus a being a transport hub bestowed on Gunning great wealth. Today, nothing.
No highway and shrunken distances have confined Gunning, today at the mercy of ‘what’s next’. Gunning was originally a coach stop, and service centre for the surrounding farms mainly growing Merino. It had a police station and court house, post office, and school.
The main railway from Sydney arrived in 1875 and was completed through Melbourne in 1881.
A visit to Gunning is recommended. The place is quiet, and a few moments and a coffee or refreshment to savior what was will be a pleasant surprise.
