Established in the late 1870s, this town is historically significant as an important coach stop. Coaches were vital for communication, Royal Mail and transport in Wentworth Shire.
Up to six lines operated to and from the area to Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide. Gol Gol Inn was one of the major change stations.
Today, Gol Gol Hotel is still a favourite stop. The town hosts a range of accommodation and recreational activities on the picturesque banks of the mighty Murray River. An award winning boutique winery can be found at Trentham Cliffs.
