    Bungonia Gorge

    by iandsmith Written Nov 16, 2006

    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.

    Looks like a light house.. but its a war memorial....... even has light on top that rotates like a light house,,,,, but it`s a war memorial.......

    **when you drive into town from the north.. you will pass a ``cemetary``,,, just before the ``maximum security prison`` look up and to your left... can`t miss it........

    The bulb blew a while ago like $20,000 for a new light globe!!!! so we were without a `light` for like almost a year before the RSL finally took some pokie credits out of the machines got off their bums and got a new globe..

    Tax deduction right?? They must have been too busy with Sunday night chook raffles to have the time

    I can see the memorial from my house and it`s really pretty at night with the light,, and a fantastic view from UP there at night of Goulburn...... but please dont eat your McDonalds up there enjoying the view and dump the rubbish there ! Disgusting...... have more respect !

    War Memorial

    by iandsmith Written Sep 15, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Situated on a hill visible from the streets of Goulburn is the War Memorial, dedicated to those who lost their lives whilst fighting for Australia.
    There is a museum close by with an interesting display and there are some nice picnic spots with tables just below the base of the tower with commanding views of the countryside.

    Lest we forget
