Location & Surrounding Districts:

Gundagai:

Australia’s biggest highway – the Hume – takes you to historic Gundagai. A town immortalised for over a century by classic nationalistic songs. The lines we all know well, ‘There’s a Track Winding Back…Where the Murrumbidgee’s Flowing…and the dog sits on the Tuckerbox Five Miles from Gundagai’. This legendary monument is probably the best known slice of Australian folklore – mateship between man and his dog. After all these years, the dog still holds pride of place at the multi-attraction tourist rest just 8km north of Gundagai on the western side of the Hume Highway.

There are many things to see in Gundagai. A unique experience is Ruscon’s Marble Masterpiece. A cathedral in miniature containing 21,000 pieces of marble mined in NSW. It was created by former Gundagai monumental mason Frank Rusconi in his spare time over 25 years. The Gundagai Tourist Centre houses the Rusconi Marble Masterpiece, along with other memorabilia. Stay a while for the Two-Foot Tour of Gundagai and discover the town’s history, architecture and character. The Dr. Gabriel Gallery contains hundreds of photographs of early Gundagai printed by the Australian National Library. Well worth a visit, the majestic Gundagai Court House built in 1859 where Captain Moolight the bushranger was sentenced, the Gundagai Historic Museum, the old 1849 Flour Mill, the town’s famous bridges, the Railway Bridge built in 1901, and the sprawling Prince Alfred Bridge of 1866 – the longest timber viaduct in Australia. Excellent accommodation is available with a choice of 7 motels, hotels, 4 star caravan village, River Caravan Park and Auto Cabins. The town boasts restaurants, cafes and coffee shops licensed club and golf course.

Location & Surrounding Districts (cont’d):

Tumut:

Tucked in the south west of New South Wales, this region is spectacular in natural beauty and diversity. The Tumut Region has natural wonders you can explore all year round with tremendous diversity ranging from huge inland lakes, clean streams, and gently sloped pastures to vast pine forests, peaked mountains, the enormous Snowy Mountains Scheme, one of the great engineering wonders of the modern world and the many attractions of the northern end of Kosciusko National Park. Rivers and dams provide fishers with plenty of opportunities for Trout and native fish. Swimming, canoeing, or rafting on the lakes or water skiing, windsurfing, sailing and recreational boating are extremely popular here. The whole family can enjoy the network of marked walking tracks that bring mountain streams, high peaks and fabulous views within easy reach. Close by are features like the magnificent Buddong Falls, Yarrangobilly Caves in Kosciusko National Park, the Sugar Pine Walk and Arboretum in State Forests and the horticulture industry where you can pick your own fruit. You can also retrace the steps of the European explorers along the Hume and Hovell Walking Track. The area is also famous for the legacy of the gold rush days of the last century where you can discover pioneer era huts, with Adelong offering some of the best preserved ruins of former gold workings in the state. You can glide and enjoy golf, bowls, tennis, squash, swimming, and horse-riding. In fact, all sports and activities are available within the Tumut region. Winter brings new enjoyment in the snow for the entire family. Selwyn Snowfields offer fabulous mountains only one and a half hours drive from Tumut, and half an hour from Talbingo providing tobogganing, downhill or country skiing or just fun throwing snowballs.
