Soak in history in Tumut

This cosy and quaint town is located at the foot of the Snowy Mountains, with lush farmlands as far as the eye can see!

Tumut also has a rich history, and the local area is home to several historical buildings and sites, such as Coolamine Homestead and the Anglican church and courthouse, with many local pubs operating since the 1800s!  When you visit this charming town, you should also take time to visit the local broom factory and learn about their fantastic traditions.

There is also rich Aboriginal history in the area – in fact, the name Tumut is derived from an Aboriginal word meaning ‘quiet place by the river’. If you want to find out more about the history and culture, you could take a  Wiradjuri Aboriginal Cultural Tour into northern Kosciuszko National Park and learn about native plants and bush tucker while you overlook incredible landscapes.

When it comes to local holiday parks, there are plenty of options of cabin and sites, with something to suit everybody. What are you waiting for?!
