About Tumbarumba area

At the foothills of the Snowy Mountains, the area around Tumbarumba is a pristine wilderness where melting snow feeds crystal-clear streams and rivers – ideal for all styles of fishing.

Explorers Hume and Hovell trekked through here on their way to Port Philip in 1824, and you can retrace their steps on a 12-km walking track that follows Burra Creek, cutting through a tunnel built during the gold-mining days in the 1800s.

Tumbarumba is a charming town with well conserved heritage buildings. It is surrounded by vineyards, trout streams and sheep stations. Nearby Khancoban is well worth a visit.
