Goulburn visitor's book stated open on Saturday and Sunday, other times by appointment. I turned up around noon on Saturday. Not a soul to be seen, signs up saying no admittance without appointment. Ignoring the empty car park and signs I walk in and eventually found mine host behind the bar. Lovely guy and I was able to purchase some... More

This place has unbelievable potential to be something amazing!! Unfortunately in its current state, it is far from anything good. The displays rooms are poorly lit, very dirty/dusty, poor signage and map made no sense, basically no historical insight/ information on the self guided tour maybe the guided does?, there is trash (old register, disco balls etc) dumped in display...

It was a great experience to have a tour in the oldest surviving brewery in Australia. Interesting facts and Michael from the front bar was so good at his job. We had a test from beer tasting and I think that was the highlight of our tour! It was so much fun. You can buy their brewed beers in the... More

As a fan of architecture, I was interested not only in the building itself, but also the Greenway exhibition. The buildings are impressive and appear to be well maintained. I opted for the "self guided" tour, and found it to be disappointing. Poorly lit rooms offered zero view of what was inside. The biggest disappointment was the Greenway exhibition; a... More

If you appreciate your beers and history, this place is worth a short stop. There are three beers to taste and buy, all brewed following the original recipe and using local hops. Yes, the surroundings are tired but put this aside, taste the beers and have a chat with the barman. You could do worse for a stop off the... More

The Goulburn Brewery is the oldest in Australia, and we have lunch in the Maltings. It is really a ploughman's lunch with slabs of buttered bread, slices of meat and salad, accompanied by beer, wine, soft drink, tea or coffee. Not my choice, but OK. This is followed by a tour of the premises by enthusiastic and knowledgable guide Michael... More

This place has so much potential. I wish I could promote and praise this historic venue but it's a struggle. The brewery has so much potential but it is very tired and needs some love. The menu is an unusual combination which is made sound better by the enthusiastic staff than it actually is. Nothing exciting here unfortunately. Don't let... More

On first appearance we thought what a wonderful quaint little place....visiting on a Saturday aftenoon we were to discover quite quickly that this was nothing like what was projected via Goulburn Information. Cons..self guided tour was a joke. Map was confusing and signage was hopeless. It beggars belief that in the "Malting Room" there was a strobe light and disco... More

The 19th c brick brewery stil uses the old methods to brew its beers, and the tranquil, historical site attracts film makers and tourists alike. The yard is green and all one hears is the chickens and other birds. There are three beers to choose from: avoid the lager as it was sour and flat from having been too long... More
