Gundagai Heritage Railway


Gundagai railway station is a New South Wales State Heritage-listed timber station dating from 1886. The station closed in 1984 and since 1992 has been restored into a tourist attraction which sees local and international tourists come to visit.

Many historical displays and photos are in the museum and in the yard rollingstock can be seen. The museum is managed by a volunteer team which is keen to showcase the NSW rail history. Each year Open Day events are held to attract people and raise further awareness.

Volunteers work on restoring the station and yard with plans to rebuild the line and run tourist trains in the future.

The station is five minutes off the Hume Highway - come and spend 30 minutes or so at the station and learn some local history. Donations are welcomed to keep the project running as is any support from interested volunteers or members.

Historic Bridges of Gundagai


The landscape at Gundagai is dominated by four bridges spanning the Murrumbidgee flats: the historic Prince Alfred Bridge, the timber Railway Bridge, and now the dual Sheahan bridges of the Hume Highway.

The timber viaducts are wonderful examples of early engineering solutions to crossing a major flood plain. Their national significance is recognised with listing by the National Trust. They are a spectacular latticework of wooden trusses, spanning the flood plains and river.

Follow the River Walk from Yarri Park - they are well worth a look. Follow the signs or pick up a brochure from the Visitor Centre.

Gundagai Memorial Cairns


There are two Memorial Cairns in Gundagai.

One is the Rose Inn Cairn situated on the Gundagai Golf Course on Middleton Drive. This Cairn is to commemorate the public house constructed by Thomas Lindley which was part of Old Gundagai that was lost in the 1852 flood.

Many explorers passed close to Gundagai on their way to Port Phillip Bay including: Hume and Hovell, Charles Sturt and Edward John Eyre. This is marked by Cairn in the River Caravan Park. This is also the spot where Sturt crossed the Murrumbidgee River for the first time.

Gundagai Historic Museum


Those interested in history will find the Gundagai Historical Museum fascinating. It is a treasure trove of memorabilia, with displays of pioneer life, bushrangers and even Phar Lap's saddlecloth.

One highlight of the vast collection is the two gorgets (medallions) presented to Yarri and Jacky, the Wiradjuri men whose efforts saved many lives during the great flood of 1852.

The collection also includes a T-model Ford, farm machinery, wagons, equipment, clothing, coins, stamps, household items and other interesting paraphernalia from the 19th and early 20th century.

The museum is managed entirely by dedicated volunteers and the visitor's book hints at the nostalgic journey of many who have spent time going through the displays.

The Dog on the Tucker Box


Since 1932, the Dog has sat beside the Hume Highway, a favourite stopping place for thousands of travellers. Originally set up to assist Gundagai Hospital, today the Dog still helps the hospital's vital work with the monies from its wishing well and royalties from some souvenirs. Over the decades it has been celebrated in song and story, and faithfully commemorates the efforts of the European pioneers who settled the region.

The Dog on the Tucker Box Pioneer Monument welcomes visitors with a newly redesigned garden precinct featuring Australian animal figurines, a cafe serving hot and cold refreshments, souvenirs, Australiana, antiques, old wares and a peaceful picnic area away from the busy highway, with plenty of parking (caravans and tourist buses included). Special events benefiting a range of charities are held throughout the year, culminating in the Dog's Birthday each November.
