"Clean country town"

I always manage to drive through Gundagai on the way from Sydney to Melbourne or vice versa. When I drive through, the stretch that lies on the main road is always quite nice as the stores are there to try to lure you into buying something. The public toilets on the main street are always very clean and are set amongst grass to give your eyes a rest and legs a stretch if you are traveling long distance and really need a breather. There are pubs and cafes in the place but I have managed to give them a miss. There is probably more to see and do here but being from Sydney we just love to storm through it and try to get home in record time.

"Gundagai - Famous for poetry and prose"

Gundagai is on the Hume Highway south west of Sydney and is often remembered for a song about the “Dog on the Tucker Box, five mile from Gundagai”. Naturally one of the first places to visit is actually a road side stop with a bronze dog sitting on tucker box. The town offers some diverse ways of passing the time such as fishing in the Murrumbidgee River, wandering down the streets of the town looking at the heritage listed buildings, visiting the museum and galleries for an insight into the past. There are natural wonders as well, such as the scenery from Mt Parnassus lookout or some lovely walks nearby. Caravan parks and motels as well as B & B’s and guesthouses offer great accommodation and there are places to eat to suit all tastes.
