"GOULBURN - thirsty town" Goulburn by tiabunna
Goulburn Travel Guide: 68 reviews and 143 photos
I shall revisit this page at some future time to add details on what is a quite historic and pleasant town. I've been prompted to create the page now by discussions in VT about water restrictions.
Goulburn isn't normally a particularly dry place, but the drought which began in the late 1990s in eastern Australia has created a particularly severe water shortage there - to the extent that the dams essentially are dry. That meant the introduction of Stage 5 water restrictions from 1 October 2004. These involve a ban on all outdoor use of water and a request that household use be kept under a target of 150 litres per person daily. As far as I am aware, Goulburn is (to date) the only Australian city which has needed to go to this stage of water usage limitations.
- Pros:Pleasant country town
- Cons:But very dry at present
