Garroorigang - Goulburn
Built in 1857, Garroorigang is the private home of the Hume family, descendants of explorer Hamilton Hume. Functioning first as an inn on the road to the gold fields, then for twenty years as a private boarding school for the 'Sons of Gentlemen', and a gracious private home since 1868 has left Garroorigang filled with an extraordinary and rare collection of historical items and family memorabilia. The history of over 157 years has been carefuly preserved in this historic home. Family members provide guided tours for groups and individuals through the homestead, telling visitors about the history and stories behind particular items, giving young and old a remarkable insight into daily life over the past 157 years.
Opening times: 9.30am to 12.30 pm and 1.30 to 4.30 pm. Closed on Christmas Day, Good Friday and ANZAC Day.
