Marulan is the only town in the world which is situated on the 150th meridian which is used as the basis for Australian Eastern Standard Time; a sculpture depicting this interesting fact is located in the town centre.

Marulan features historic buildings dating back to the 19th century, with the township steeped in history including stories of bushrangers holding up traffic travelling north to Sydney from the southern goldfields. 


A Brief History

First explored at the behest of Governor Hunter in 1798 in search for salt, it was 20 years before serious exploration and settlement took place. In 1818 Hamilton Hume and James Meehan passed through the area, investigating the agricultural potential of the Goulburn Plains.

By the mid-1820’s the township of Marulan had been established as a private village located at the junction of Bungonia Road and the Great South Road, the village was named Mooroowoolen. A new town was surveyed and laid out by Surveyor General Thomas Mitchell in 1834, which was officially gazetted as Marulan in 1835.
