Upcoming Events in Upper Lachlan Shire

Just off the Hume Highway between Goulburn and Yass, Gunning makes a great getaway for a day trip or weekend. The town dates back to the 1820s and features many historical buildings. Explorer Hamilton Hume established a sheep enterprise here in 1821 and in 1824, he and William Hovell set off on their expedition to Port Phillip Bay, Melbourne. Like many towns in the Southern Tablelands, in its early days Gunning experienced issues with bushrangers. In 1840, the Whitton Gang murdered Hamilton Hume's brother John. His grave can be found in the Gunning Cemetery in Wombat Street, and his story is engraved on his tombstone. Gunning has a vibrant arts community and art lovers will enjoy a visit to the Picture House Art Gallery and Bookstore, where you can not only see and purchase works of art, but also catch up on what's happening in the local arts scene. Music and theatre lovers also take note: Gunning Focus Group organises regular concerts and shows by world class performers, so if you are coming to Gunning be sure to check out their Facebook page. While you are in town, enjoy the town's shops, cafés and local pub!
