Googong Foreshores


The Googong Foreshore area is ideal for sightseeing, fishing, bushwalking, picnicking, canoeing and sailing.

Swimming is restricted to downstream of the weir wall only near the picnic areas and camping is not permitted.

Googong Foreshores is located 10 kilometres south of Queanbeyan and the London Bridge area is a further 16 kilometres south towards Burra. The dam wall is 62 metres high and the spillway can be viewed from a car park at the northern end. It is the water catchment area for Canberra and Queanbeyan, a recreation area for public use and a wildlife refuge.

London Bridge Arch is an interesting limestone formation, formed when water flowing along Burra Creek leaked through cracks in the limestone. These cracks were enlarged as the limestone was dissolved and worn away, forming caves and eventually the London Bridge Arch.

Queanbeyan Printing Museum


The Queanbeyan Printing Museum is one of only a handful nationwide and is fully operational, offering a range of restored machines from the 1870s through to 1960s when letterpress printing in Queanbeyan was superseded by electronics and computerised typesetting.

The museum has 12 main sections from hand-set type, through hot-metal production, including a model 14 Lintotype, to a variety of printing presses such as Wharfedale hand-fed press, various platens, proof presses and a Meihle automatic commercial printing press. A complete photographic darkroom is also featured. All machines have been restored to operational mode.

A number of machines came from the "Queanbeyan Age" newspaper. The Age was established in 1860 and is still being produced today. The static displays include tools of trade and memorabilia of a bygone age of the printing profession with photographs and reproductions of The Age front pages on display.

Tex Perkins and Matt Walker


It's understandably difficult to pull together a coherent picture of a man whose career has taken in everything from the groundbreaking experimental punktonica of Sydney mid-80s noiseniks Thug to the lilting, dark country of his recent material with the Dark Horses.

From the hard edged pub rock of the Beasts Of Bourbon's, a snarling slice of filthy pub rock to the evocative soundscapes of The Cruel Sea, whose extraordinary 1991 single 'This Is Not The Way Home' placed Perkins' world-weary growl in a new musical context and heralded the emergence of an entirely original yet archetypically Australian sound.

Now is Tex's exciting new (and long over due) collaboration with Matt Walker (a great artist in his own right) for duo shows. It's a blues swamp-groove kinda thing that's a little reminiscent of some of the things in Tex's back catalogue. Many new originals inhabit the setlist, but see them now while they still have to flesh out the set with a few Cruel Sea covers!

The People of Queanbeyan welcome all visitors to their city. The Visitor Information Centre is situated in one of the city's iconic, heritage listed buildings, built in 1925 to house the first Council Chamber, smack bang in the middle of town on the main street.

The friendly, local staff at the centre pride themselves on delivering up to date information on the city, it's heritage and history. They can advise on activities to keep you occupied in Queanbeyan and in the Canberra region. Customer service is their number one priority.

The centre has an array of caravan, camping and accommodation information, free maps, as well as a multitude of interesting information about Queanbeyan, the local region and beyond.

The Cenotaph, in the form of a tall pillar, with an Honour Roll remembering those locals who lost their lives in the Great War 1914 -1918, is located at the front of the building and Honour Rolls for other Wars including WW2, Korean War and the Vietnam War are located in the surrounding garden, which is an attraction all on its own.
