Territory and Municipal Services are letting people know about their historic tours of the Googong woolshed and shearers’ quarters.
“On Sunday 2 December 2012, there is an opportunity to go on a 60 minute tour of the woolshed and see where the shearers worked and lived from the early 1900s,” said Geoff Webb, Operations Manager, Googong Foreshores.
“The woolshed is one of the few remaining artefacts in the area with links to the site’s European cultural heritage, and remnants of the level wool press traditionally used in the woolshed’s operations can still be seen today.
“Not only will you get to take in the lovely scenery, but you will also get to learn some fascinating facts about the area’s pastoral period.
“The activity is free but bookings are essential, so make sure you don’t miss out by calling 6207 2779 to secure a spot.
