We didn’t have far to drive today so sightseeing filled in the morning. First we went up to the Rocky Hill Lookout where the War Memorial and Museum are located. The museum was closed but the view was good.
Next we went and checked out the Goulburn Historic Waterworks. It is quite remarkable how some of these steam powered water pumps have survived without being sent to scrap. It wasn’t operating today but it was still worth a visit.
Next on the list was the Big Merino on the way out of town heading for Gundagai. It is hard to believe it weighs 100 tonne and was moved to its present spot from just up the road.
Just across the road is Trappers Bakery, it is worth the effort to check out the trivia on the walls inside, while you try their wares.
We finally made it to Gundagai around 3.00pm, found our campsite for the night and had time to check out the historic restored railway station and 2 historic bridges that are still standing but in sad state of repair.
A building, formerly a flour mill that has been under water in over 20 floods, several times lapping the floorboards on the first floor.
The flood levy guage showing different flood heights (may have to adjust picture). The worst were the 1852 floods where many lives were lost.
