Things to do around Tumbarumba, NSW

Travellarks, Things to do around Tumbarumba

Tumbarumba, NSW is a charming little town in high country surrounded by spectacular scenery of the Snowy Mountains. To its south- Mt Kosciusko, and to its west, the iconic Murray River. There are plenty of things to do in and around the town in this adventurer’s playground of original Gold Rush territory.

In summer, cycle, hike, mountain bike, explore. Wade into crisp, clear waterfalls or fish, canoe and smoke up a fire pit for a picnic or star gaze on chilly Tumbarumba evenings. Lap up the snow in winter as it’s a great base for Mount Selwyn skiing.

Tumbarumba is a 5 hrs drive from Sydney  and 2 hrs from Canberra.
