Gol Gol (NSW) on the Sturt Highway between Euston and Mildura

Close to Mildura and Buronga you'll find Gol Gol. A small town on the way to Euston offers great services.

Back in the 1850s and the years of optimistic thinking a huge area of land, 203 000 hectares (half a million acres), was taken up by squatters in south-western New South Wales, and Gol Gol sheep station came into existence. It was a bustling, prosperous place with a huge woolshed, buoyed up by high wool prices and boom-time economic conditions. But that was to end with the shearers' strike of 1890, depression of 1891 and 92, bank crashes of 1893, and the disastrous drought of 1895-1903. On the semi-desert land of Gol Gol Station, what the sheep didn't eat the rabbits did, and the final collapse was inevitable.

The Gol Gol Pub is one of the few pubs actually on the banks of the Murray River. A relatively short trip by boat or houseboat it's a great place to moor, sit back and relax with a drink and classic pub meal. Haven't got a boat? No, worries. Call in directly off the Sturt Highway and enjoy yourself.
