We decided to "complete the circle" around the ACT by adding Goulburn to our list. A few smaller towns could also be included as well as starting the recording of the memorial rest areas along Remembrance Drive (the portion of the Federal and Hume Highways linking Canberra and Sydney). I haven't included images of these plaques since the post will be long enough anyway - basically they tell the story of how each honouree earnt the Victoria Cross. In many case the awards were post mortem.
The first Rest Area we stopped at was at the Southern end of Lake George. It honoured Charles Anderson VC. A brass plaque commemorated the Lynch family : there have been a number of drowning in the Lake when full of water.

No, we didn't stray into Queensland. Goulburn has a Big Merino (which has been moved about 1km up the road once the bypass was constructed).

Henry Lawson story although it appears the pub predates the yarn by about 50 years!
