Birds eye viewOur Braidwood is the first Town listed on the NSW State Heritage register in 2007.

Its location is ideal: an easy driving distance from Canberra, the South Coast or Goulburn, and only three hours from Sydney - an easy day trip to discover Braidwood's treasures or for a weekend getaway.

Braidwood businesses have been welcoming visitors for over 150 years whether seeking their fortunes on the goldfields, seeking relaxation, good food and the cultural attractions of a un-spoilt country town.


Wallace Street

What is so special about Our Town, Historic Braidwood?

  • If you are on the road - stop and take a break, look at the many tempting wares displayed in historic buildings on Wallace Street, the main street, or the pretty tree lined Duncan Street off Wallace Street or visit the antiques and collectable shops on Erlington or Riley streets - both parallel to Wallace Street.
  • If you are looking for a weekend getaway, you do not need to look further - you can find something to your taste - from motels, hotels, pub-stays to B & Bs and self contained accommodation in town or in the bush, in Araluen, Majors Creek or in the heart of the Deua National Park.
  • Heritage Listed Braidwood and its surrounding villages and country side has everything you need: breathtaking nature, romantic accommodation, fine restaurants and indulgent shopping.
  • You can still find old fashioned service and those things you used to love - homemade burgers, boiled lollies, handcrafted items, toys, models and works by renowned artists and craftsmen.
