Tumut is a great place to visit to experience its colourful autumn landscapes, thermal pool and limestone caves.
About Tumut area
At the northern gateway to the Snowy Mountains, the Tumut region is rich in natural beauty, offering fresh adventure experiences and stunning landscapes that change with the seasons. Go touring and you'll be refreshed by the natural beauty of Tumut, the historic streetscape of Adelong, the inspiring scenery around Talbingo and the sweet, crisp flavour of an apple from Batlow. Tumut itself is one of the main towns at the centre of the Snowy Mountains Hydro-Electric Scheme, in the Tumut River Valley.
If golf is your game you'll enjoy teeing off at a lakeside or mountain golf course, where you might have to keep an eye out for kangaroos on the greens. About 80 km from Tumut are the beautiful Yarrangobilly Caves, and a nearby thermal pool that's perfect for a winter dip.
