There is an amazing array of experiences in the Upper Goulburn. Within easy reach of the city, you can go skiing, 4WD touring, camping, fishing, boating, and bushwalking. Add rafting, canoeing, fossicking, mountain climbing, horse riding, sightseeing, picnicking, visiting national parks and native forests - the list is as long as the day!
Boating, fishing and especially fly fishing have always been popular because of the abundant clear, clean rivers and mountain streams. These streams are regularly stocked with brown trout, rainbow trout, salmon, perch, Murray cod and Australian bass.
Along with the superb wines the area is noted for stunning scenery. The Upper Goulburn is overflowing with natural assets - beautiful mountains for skiing in winter and bushwalking in summer, waterfalls, an extensive river system, national parks and nature trails. It is a region that caters for nearly every activity.
There is also some wonderful regional produce such as trout, game meat and berries and plenty of restaurants, cafes and hotels where you will find it on the menu. Plus the extensive bed and breakfast accommodation and varied camping opportunities to give you that relaxing, down to earth country experience.
The Upper Goulburn was built on the gold rush of the 1850s. There is still gold to be found there, but it is of a more subtle variety. It is in the lining of the clouds at sunset, in the golden rays of the morning sun, and the pure joy of finding yourself again through spending time in the beauty of nature.
