Australia is one of the countries with the most abundant wool production. The areas surrounding Goulburn are best suited for sheep, thanks to its mild climate and grasslands.
Goulburn is most famous because of The Big Merino, a statue of a big sheep (standing 50 ft.) that symbolizes the city's agricultural history. People can take pictures with the monument and go inside it. On the ground floor is a gift shop, on the second floor is a wool display, and visitors can climb to the top and look through The Big Merino's eyes to see the fascinating view of the area.
Other notable places you can visit with your loved ones in Goulburn are Belmore Park, Goulburn Historic Waterworks, and Goulburn Regional Art Gallery.
The Flower of Goulburn:
The Goulburn Lilac City Festival Market is held every first Saturday of the month (except January). It is a local bazaar, full of assorted goods, crafts, and flowers, that acts as a fundraising activity in preparation for the annual Goulburn Lilac City Festival - a big community event held during October.
