LOCATION: GOULBURN, NEW SOUTH WALES
The tree lined streets of Goulburn hide the long history of this inland town. Being close to not only Sydney but also Canberra, it has long been a favourite place to stop off for travellers to either city.
Kangaroo Valley is just west from the South Coast and considered a good place to spot not only the variety of colourful birdlife but other Australian wildlife within the hilly surrounding forests and bushland.
The surrounding region of Canberra is regarded as Capital Country. Goulburn is the largest city within the region.
