Heading East, you’ll find a small town straight out of the the gold rush days called Gundaroo, about 35 minutes away from Canberra. With a private bus hire from Canberra you could easily tie this detour in with Bungendore in a single day. The former Gundaroo Courthouse, now a church, was built in 1875 and is open to visitors. A stop at the Gundaroo WWII memorial is a must and the Grazing restaurant in the old Royal Hotel makes the perfect lunch stop, or alternatively, check out the Gundaroo Colonial Inn for some afternoon refreshments. You can also taste some of the local wines at a number of cellar doors in town.
