About Gundagai

Gundagai is one of Country NSW's best-known pioneer towns, immortalised through poems and songs such as Where the Dog Sits on the Tuckerbox and Along the Road to Gundagai. The handsome town is 82 km south-east of Wagga Wagga. You'll find the monument to early pioneers, the iconic Dog on the Tuckerbox, on the Hume Highway, just north of Gundagai.

Visit the heritage locations to learn why the town is so irresistible to artists, songwriters and bards. Wander past some of the town's oldest buildings – don't miss the old flour mill in Sheridan Lane, Gundagai Heritage Railway or the Prince Alfred Bridge, Australia's longest timber viaduct, built in 1866. Find out more at Gundagai Historic Museum.

Lovers of the great outdoors can fish for trout or Murray cod, or admire the view from the lookout atop Mount Parnassus. Further afield in the Wagga Wagga area, you'll find plenty of natural attractions, such as Galore Hill Nature Reserve and beautiful Kindra State Forest.

Gundagai's accommodation is plentiful – you'll find charming cottages, farm stays, B&Bs and many more places to stay in town.
