Goulburn Australia reopens to Visitors

Goulburn NSW -


Following the announcement from the NSW Government – allowing intra-state travel and a range of facilities to reopen from 1st June, 2020 – it’s time to start planning a long awaited getaway to Goulburn Australia.


The Goulburn Visitor Information Centre, Goulburn Regional Art Gallery, Goulburn Mulwaree Library, Goulburn Historic Waterworks and the brand new, state-of-the-art Rocky Hill War Memorial Museum are all set to reopen and welcome visitors.


Goulburn Mulwaree Mayor, Bob Kirk, said he will be pleased to have these facilities open for use after being closed for three months.


“I know how important these facilities are for the visitor economy, and am looking forward to having them open again for visitors to use.”


“Strict guidelines will be in place for distancing and hygiene, and no tours or groups will be allowed just yet. We cannot reinforce strongly enough that you should not come into our facilities if you are unwell – let’s make sure we can keep them open!”


For the past three weeks the Goulburn Visitor Information Centre has been providing a “Call and Collect” retail service to support their regional suppliers, this service will continue into the foreseeable future.


The Visitor Information Centre stocks a variety of local and regional products, maps, and destination guides. The friendly team of local experts are eager to welcome visitors and speak with them about what there is to see and do whilst they are in the region.


A new addition to the Rocky Hill War Memorial precinct in the form of a brand new, state-of-the-art Museum will be one of the local attractions that visitors can experience. Construction work began on the site in January 2019, to build the new Museum and renovate the original cottage.


This is the first opportunity for visitors to see the new Museum, the Memorial and Cottage, as well as explore the grounds, after being closed for over 12 months while construction of the new Rocky Hill War Memorial Museum was undertaken. The opening exhibition – ‘Objects of National Significance: When War Trophies came to Goulburn’ – is a must see.


Goulburn Regional Art Gallery team members are also excited to welcome the public back to the Gallery. Exhibitions currently on display include: Sidney McMahon – ‘Of hope and longing’, Gallery 2: ‘You forgot that spaghettis can swim’ and The Window – Curated by Hannah Gee.


A range of other attractions, eateries and accommodation providers are also ready to welcome you back to the region; however, we do recommend calling operators ahead of your arrival to confirm bookings and opening hours.
