GUNNING

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.

That said from an historic perspective there is a lot going for the town and in the new tourism era, that history may bring visitors.

The Telegraph Hotel is the sole survivor from many pubs and accommodation services.

The War Memorial is just by the Post Office.

The churches are/were century old plus structures

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.
