Nature in Tumut and surrounds

Located in the Tumut River Valley, in the foothills of the Snowy Mountains, Tumut is famous for its colourful autumn landscapes, and nearby thermal pool and limestone caves.

About 80 km from Tumut are the beautiful Yarrangobilly Caves, home to a warm thermal pool that's perfect for winter swimming, as well as some impressive stalactites in North Glory Hole Cave.

Enjoy the Tumut River Walk, go fishing at Talbingo Reserve or explore the native ash forests of Bago Plateau in Bago State Forest on horseback, mountain-bike or on foot.

Pilot Hill Arboretum is a great picnic spot less than half an hour's drive from nearby Batlow, with plantings of more than 50 tree species from all over the world.

Don't miss stocking up on crunchy apples from Batlow or wander along the historic streetscape of Adelong.
