Best Places To Eat In Goulburn

Goulburn was one of the first towns established by European settlers in Australia. From 1863, it was declared the first city in Australia (excluding Aboriginal cities by settlers).

You Can Go Out To Dinner, But You May Not Find Somewhere To Eat

Cities, especially urban areas, are full of amazing historic buildings. The best way to explore them is to walk the heritage trail on your own. You can choose a city tour brochure or download a map here. It’s a short circuit that takes 20 minutes to walk and time to take pictures. It includes more than 20 examples of historic architecture from Art Nouveau to Gothic Revival. Depending on the time of day, some buildings are open to visitors, such as the post office and the church, but the main idea here is to take in the facades from the outside.

Looking for more history? Check out the Goulburn Historic Waterworks or the Goulburn Rail Heritage Centre, both free with a small tour fee.

I don’t know if this applies to Australia and New Zealand, but we like to see big things in small towns as tourist attractions. Often something that symbolizes a city’s history or an important industry. In the case of Goulburn, there is the “Big Merino”, even compared to the size of a large statue, it is huge, weighing almost 100 tons. The statue is a highlight of the city’s wool industry and is home to the Merino Museum, where you can buy merino products and learn a bit about the history of Australian wool. You can find Big Merino on the main street in Goulburn on the Canberra (south) side. It’s worth a visit just for the photos.

The statue is “open” 24/7 and free, the museum is open daily 9:00-17:00 and is also free.

You’ll pass this beautiful city park on the heritage walk, but it’s worth a mention in its own right. Adorned with rose gardens and temples, it is a perfect place for a picnic or picnic.

The park overlooks Goulburn’s original town square and war memorial and includes a greenhouse conservatory. There are several cafes on the Auburn Road side of Belmore Park where you can sit and enjoy the green scenery.

Whether you’re into art galleries or street art, Goulburn has a place for you. Visit the Goulburn Regional Art Gallery to view the work of local artists or explore the many paintings and sculptures on the city’s streets. The gallery is open Monday through Saturday and admission is free. You can see 30+ street art projects planned here, many within easy walking distance of Goulburn city centre.

You can visit the Roses Cafe for breakfast or lunch, but it’s a must-do if you’re in Goulburn. Next door is the Abbey Motel, in (another) heritage building and decorated with flowers. If you’re visiting in the winter or on a rainy March day like me, the best place to warm up with a coffee is on the sofa by the fireplace. Along with their delicious buffet and extensive breakfast and lunch menu, they also do a double breasted coffee that is a big winner in my book.

It’s the rule of thumb in New South Wales and small towns in Australia and New Zealand that make average pies. In fact, almost every town has a bakery that claims to have the best pie. In Goulburn, do as the locals do and visit Trappers Bakery (next to The Big Merino) or Bryants Bakery (on Main Street) for a delicious dinner.

Goulburn is full of small restaurants serving country town staples. The Southern Railway Hotel is the best hotel in the city, located in a heritage building across from the railway station. They are aiming for a gastro-pub offering with an updated food menu and a wine list that exceeds the usual Aussie parm and beer prices.

Goulburn is accessible from Sydney or the Canberra-Sydney Regional Rail on the Southern Highlands Rail Line. Regional trains run more frequently, but require advance reservations (preferably one day in advance) and are more expensive (about $20 each way) compared to SHL trains, which cost about $10 each and do not require reservations. Driving time from Sydney is two hours and from Canberra one hour, the train is a little longer, about 2.5 hours and 1.5 hours.

Nsw Restaurants Worth Travelling For

There are several chain hotels in Goulburn, such as the Quest and Mercure, which are safe bets, but the best accommodation option is to stay in one of the heritage houses or motels. I’m staying at 41 Cowper, an Airbnb style apartment booked through Booking.com, it’s a gem. The apartment is the front part of an old house, with a beautiful garden and interior restoration at an affordable price. The host was very friendly, greeted me personally and provided a full breakfast. Abbey Motel Heritage is another good choice for large groups or those needing cooking facilities.

Australians have some weird food, like kangaroo burgers, crocodile steak, etc. Australian Easter meals are usually based on standards… Excited: Cascades restaurant staff Emma Backhouse, Vicky Rabjohns and Debbie Perkins can’t wait to welcome customers.

Superlatives Don’t Do Justice To This ‘jaw Dropping’ Goulburn Home

At Cascades, a Best Western Plus restaurant in Goulburn, the kitchen is overflowing with food and excitement is running high.

“It just seems like a long time to take away. We care about our regular customers, we only see their faces.”

But with the Cascades not in the area, most of the restaurants, cafes and pubs associated with Goulburn Post open for 10 diners – subject to restrictions – uneconomical.

In fact, Franco Berlusconi of La Casa Italiana on Auburn Street called the 10-person limit “ridiculous.”

“Taking care of 10 people doesn’t help anything – it doesn’t pay the guy who cleans the toilets,” he said.

In the meantime, he plans to renovate the restaurant, create a new menu, and open it with the original feel of an Italian trattoria.

Kelsey Seers of Grit Cafe is in a similar situation and said the cafe will be open for the foreseeable future from 6 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

But the Taralga Hotel staff planned to reopen the next day, and they served dinner twice, 6-7.30 and 7.30-9.00 (Thursday night, Friday and I sat in a row).

Reasons Why The Goulburn Valley Should Be On Your Radar

“It’s not like it’s a warehouse, it’s like a little funky restaurant in a warehouse,” he said.

He says they’re all scratching their heads about the procedure, such as a thorough cleaning between auditions.
