Only fifteen minutes from Crookwell is the friendly village of Grabben Gullen. This village gets its name from the Aboriginal word for “small waters” which describes this town perfectly.
The abundance of feeder streams into the Lachlan River has provided a treasure trove for fossickers, where sapphires, garnets, zircons and gold have been found in abundance over the years. Today there is still a public fossicking area under the bridge on the Sapphire Road.
The Albion is the local hotel with cool drinks to accompany a good country yarn. For a very unusual experience, discover the All Year Round Cricket Match on Bulleys Crossing Rd.
Every 3rd Saturday on the month, Grabben Gullen holds the very popular Grabby Fresh Produce & Market at the community hall. A fantastic range of products available from home made preserves to plants and fresh fruit and vegetables.
So if you are a keen fossicker or just travelling between Gunning and Crookwell, make sure you make a stop at Grabben Gullen.
