Arts, culture and heritage in Gundagai
Gundagai is home of the famous Dog on the Tuckerbox monument, nestled between Mt Parnassus and the Murrumbidgee River.
Gundagai in NSW is immortalised through poems and songs such as "Where the Dog Sits on the Tuckerbox", and "Along the Road to Gundagai". The monument to early pioneers, the iconic "Dog on the Tuckerbox", is situated on the Hume Highway, just north of Gundagai. The town is 82 km south-east of Wagga Wagga.
Wander through Gundagai to see some of the town's oldest buildings - don't miss the old flour mill in Sheridan Lane, or the Prince Alfred Bridge, Australia's longest timber viaduct, built in 1866. Throw in a line on the Murrumbidgee for trout or Murray cod or admire the view from the lookout atop Mt Parnassus.
