This gorge is an offshoot of the Shoalhaven River and is a popular spot for bushwalkers. There is a National Park office at the camp site which has good facilities for all. We spent a night there in the motorhome and had it all to ourselves.
Next day I left for my early morning sojourn and skirted the rim of the canyon on the most popular (green) walk.
These shots were taken on that walk. Most people get off on the spider's web shots (1&2) though I personally prefer the mist laden cliff tops of pic 3.
The fourth shot gives you an idea of how those affected by vertigo should avoid the lookouts while the last shot gives you an idea of just how rugged the country is.
All this is around half an hour north east of Goulburn.
There's a hill on the western side of the main street and, it's a fair bet in these type of towns that there will be some notable architecture on them. Goulburn doesn't disappoint with some fine Federation style two storey efforts among them but this particular one, the only one with an historical plaque, was in dire need of repair.
Its name is Clandulla and it was built for a haberdasher named Mr. W. Lane by Louis le Breton
