"Heavens Doorstep!!!!"

Have to say the people here are soooo friendly and make you feel welcome. Best fishing spot in Australia, with a choice of lakes, rivers and creeks all nearby . Caught the best wild rainbow trout. So many beautiful places to visit. I love it here so much. If you dont move here, at least visit. A great place to have overseas guests come to see. This is the real Australia and how every town should be.
Pros
  • Friendly people
  • Most beautiful environment
  • Great fishing sites and waterfalls
Cons
  • Fair drive to major town
  • Not much nightlife

"Nice small town on the less visited side of the Snowy Mountains Region"

Tumbarumba is a small country town on the less visited side of the Snowy Mountains in New South Wales. It has a very pleasant feel to the place and if you are touring the area, is an excellent place to stop over for a night. Being from the city, the street is well presented and the shops there are interesting. Nearby there are some nice waterfalls, rivers and lakes to be seen. I happened to visit during State of Origin one year and the local RSL was packed with locals cheering on the blues. It was a great sight watching everybody just relax, drink their beers and engage in a good game of footy.
