What is happening in Gulgong during the June Long Weekend?

Although there will be no Henry Lawson Heritage Festival in 2021 there is still a lot going on in Gulgong that will make it worthwhile visiting.

The Gulgong Holtermann Museum will be having heritage photos taken by Alan Walker. Also in the museum there will be a Holtermann Colourised Photographic Exhibition by Christopher Dingle in the Theatrette.

The Gulgong Scarecrow Scroll will once again be a feature of the weekend and hopefully the UneARThed Art Show.

The Gulgong Turf Club will be holding their annual Country Race Meeting at the Gulgong Race track.

The Henry Lawson Centre, the wonderful Gulgong Pioneers Museum and the Gulgong Gold Experience will all be open.

The pubs, clubs, restaurants, cafes and our wonderful boutique shops will also be open.

Why not make a weekend of it and come to Gulgong. Where else would you want to be?
