Unique drive-through, undercover powered ensuite sites and comfortable cabins mark Gundagai Cabin and Tourist Park oasis

Quiet, roomy and shaded from the worst of the summer afternoon sun Gundagai Tourist Park is two minutes drive off the Hume Highway, midway between Sydney and Melbourne as the highway crosses the Murrumbidgee River. It is an excellent stopover point for travellers bound north or south on the Hume Highway, or just exploring the Riverina.

It is an oasis. GSA called a halt after more than six hours at the wheel as we rolled up the Hume from Melbourne’s bayside south eastern suburbs on one of our regular runs north. By 3pm the hill behind Gundagai Tourist Park and tall trees help shade the western end of the park from the worst of the summer sun. The shady backdrop buffers highway sounds and provides a relaxing outlook too.

Please don’t confuse Gundagai, the town, with the famous Dog on The Tuckerbox, that is five miles (8km) north of Gundagai, just off the Hume Highway, at Five Mile Creek.

Gundagai Tourist Park is just a few minute walk to the Gundagai town centre, cafes, restaurants, RSL, golf and bowling clubs. For a few dollars more the council swimming pool entrance is next door via a park guests private gate in the park’s fence.

Gundagai Tourist Park accommodation includes fully self-contained, air conditioned one and two bedroom cabins, each with individual ensuite.

The bed we tried was a comfortable fit with pristine linen. It was certainly part of the cleanest, best equipped cabin GSA has used this year in extensive cabin touring.

Gundagai Tourist Park cabins have covered verandahs with outside settings which provide a kick-back vantage point.

There are 40 unique drive-through, sheltered, undercover powered ensuite sites, all with sullage disposal. The Tourist Park also has powered and unpowered campsites for caravanners and campers on irrigated cool, clean thick green grass. This is close to a sheltered barbecue area.

Pets are allowed in the park at the manager's discretion. Under no circumstances are animals allowed in Gundagai Cabins.

Gundagai is also the ideal centre from which to discover the beauty and recreational activities of the Riverina Highlands, taking in such towns as Tumut, Adelong, Batlow, Talbingo, Tumbarumba, Khancoban and Cabramurra.

Local attractions and things to see and do in and around Gundagai include:

Gundagai Rail Bridge over Murrumbidgee River

Lanigan Abbey Art Gallery includes artworks from John Olsen, David Boyd, Herman Pekel, Loretta Blake, Kym Hart plus many more.
