Taralga (26 km)
Many of Taralga's existing buildings date from the 1860s to the 1890s, and most of them consist of stone from local volcanic supplies. This has resulted in an architectural style unique to Taralga that is somewhere between Georgian and Victorian, giving the town a unique and picturesque aesthetic.
Crookwell (64 km)
Situated high on the Great Dividing Range more than 900 m above sea level, the area experiences four distinct seasons and is ideal for growing disease-free seed potatoes, making it a key supply area to Australia's potato-growing regions. Every March, the region celebrates the industry with the Crookwell Potato Festival.
Goulburn (72 km)
Named after Henry Goulburn - the British Secretary of State for the Colonies, Goulburn developed into a major centre for wool, and in 1863, it became Australia's first inland city. Today, the town is a rich hub of history, discovery and natural beauty.
