- This small village, settled in 1830, lies near the head of the Lachlan River where the Australian poet, Banjo Paterson, met the subject of one of his most famous poems, "Clancy of the Overflow." With its award wining guest houses, motels and superb restaurants, Gunning is a great base for visits to Canberra or for a romantic weekend getaway. With a history dating back to the days of the explorers, Hume and Hovell, you can discover the fine historic buildings, including Pye Cottage, or enjoy the scenic countryside. Maps of the Historical Walk are available from Frankfield Guest House.
