Gunning, NSW
This sleepy, attractive wool-growing centre with a friendly rural atmosphere is found on the grassy plains of the Southern Tablelands, 75 km north of Canberra. It is within the Upper lachlan Shire and has a population of around 500. The township is only an hour from Canberra but is a world away in terms of lifestyle and pace of living. Here you can spend the night in a historic homestead or pub-style accommodation, browse the rural shops, explore other historic stone buildings (the old courthouse building is shown above), and enjoy country fare at a local restaurant. There are also ancient fossils at nearby Dalton.

History
The colonial explorer Hamilton Hume established a sheep property near Gunning in 1821. In 1824, with William Hovell, Hume set off from his property on a ground-breaking expedition to Port Phillip Bay in Victoria. A column by the roadside at Fish River, 5 km east of Gunning, marks their departure point. Today, local annual events include a pumpkin festival in May and a Fireworks Expo in September.
