Attraction details
Owner description: Garroorigang is an Historic Home - part of Goulburn's history for 158 years. Step back in time to a house which is full of Victorian and Edwardian furniture, books, and other items from those periods. It is still a lived-in family home for the Hume family (collateral descendants of Hamilton Hume), which is open to the public.

“Not Really a Museum”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

This wonderful old house is not really just a musuem. It is still lived in by the family and their visitors,so therefore it has a different feeling to one that is just a museum. The family will show you around and have great stories to tell of it's history. during our visit we has morning tea in the gazebo in the wobderful garden as well. A great place to visit.

“For history buffs”
Reviewed 14 May 2013

An interesting historical home to visit - has been in the same family for about 150 years. And not much has changed (or been gotten rid of) over the years, which is what makes it special. If you like to step into the past, don't miss stopping by this home for a tour. How refreshing it is to find someone who enjoys and still uses things from days gone by...
(I also stayed in the home overnight, as host Stuart Hume offers B&B accommodation, making my visit particularly memorable. Thank you for sharing your home, Stuart!)
