Tucked in the south west of New South Wales our region is spectacular in natural beauty and diversity.
The Tumut Region has natural wonders you can explore all year round with tremendous diversity ranging from huge inland lakes, clean streams, and gently sloped pastures to vast pine forests, peaked mountains, the enormous Snowy Mountains Scheme, one of the great engineering wonders of the modern world and the many attractions of the northern end of Kosciuszko National Park.
