This drive will take you off the beaten track into some of Australia’s oldest towns. Visit Cootamundra, birthplace of Australian cricketing legend, Sir Donald Bradman, and swing by the Dog on the Tuckerbox monument at Gundagai.
Make sure you visit the Temora Aviation Museum to see one of the rarest collections of ‘war birds’ in the world, including the only two flying Spitfires in Australia. You’ll also find the only flying Gloster Meteor F.8, Boomerang and Hudson Bomber in the world and the oldest flying Tiger Moth in the country.
If you like war history, the RAAF Wagga Aviation Heritage Centre and the Light Horse Memorial should be on your list too. For a change of pace, book into a ghost tour at Monte Cristo Historic Homestead, allegedly the most haunted house in Australia, and then calm down with a glass of one of the many fine wines produced in the Riverina area.
