"Tumut and the surrounds..." Tumut by CandS

Tumut Travel Guide: 68 reviews and 262 photos

I have been to the Tumut area many times for different things... It's a great area and there is so much to see and do. It is around one hours drive from my home town of Wagga Wagga so it is a place I take my overseas visitors to...

If you are wanting to see some real Aussie wildlife then the Tumut area is a great place for you!!!! We took our Dutch friends Bianca and Anne along on one trip and we saw lots of kangaroos and emus while driving around.

Camping is especially great at Tumut...the dam is a wonderful place to go camping, fishing, skiing, horse riding, boating etc. :)

As for Tumut itself...the town has around 7,500 people. It is 275 metres above sea level. The Aboriginal meaning of Tumut is something like "a quiet resting place by the river"...a great name for the place. :)

Pros and Cons

    Can't believe I went to Adelong and forgot to contact you guys. I didn't relate Wagga to Adelong and it was a rushed trip. Sorry about that. Cheers, Ian
