Nature holidays in Tumbarumba
This tranquil alpine retreat is surrounded by vineyards, meadows, trout streams and sheep and cattle stations. Snuggled into the flanks of a green valley in the shadow of forested, rugged slopes, Tumbarumba is a nature lover's paradise.
This charming town is unspoilt and virtually untouched, off the major highways and lying in a pleasant position with the dramatic peaks of the Snowy Mountains to the east. There are bubbling streams, green fields and a peaceful, gentle ambience that's a relaxing balm to city-jangled nerves. Be sure to walk the Hume and Hovell Track, which takes in goldmining sites and waterfalls. Also don't miss the Glenroy Pioneer Women's Hut with its great collection of local historical artefacts. Nearby, Khancoban is worth a visit.
