    Goulburn NSW is a city situated in the Southern Tablelands, of the Great dividing Range, at an elevation of 690metres, 195kms south of Sydney & north east of Canberra, Australia's capital. 

    It is a regional city which is a service centre for the surrounding pastoral industry as well as a railhead & would have been very prosperous during the heyday of wool when the country 'rode on the sheep's back'. It shows with all its beautiful old buildings which, no doubt, would be heritage-listed. They certainly are well-maintained, solidlooking buildings. 

    Here is the Wiki of this attractive city with all the details of its interesting history up to the present time. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

    The Welcome to Goulburn sign across the road from the motel. It is a replica of the War Memorial lighthouse in Goulburn itself. Goulburn is 100kms as the crow flies from the ocean. The lighthouse even has a revolving light on top.

    Have never seen so many houses with chimneys. They don't have them where we live in the subtropics.

    Even newer buildings are styled to fit in with the older heritage buildings.

    Nearly every country town had a Greek-run cafe called the Paragon Cafe well before the days of fancy cafes selling  coffees of all descriptions & restaurants. Always had very basic fare on the menu.

    These beautiful old buildings are now put to use by businesses which bear no relation to those the building was first intended for. At least they are being used.

    Great to see these old buldings in good repair. At least their facades are.
