Kunama: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Wilgro Orchards


Wilgro Orchards is conveniently situated on the main Tumut to Batlow Road just four kilometres north of Batlow. There is a wide range of both new and old varieties of apples that have been tree ripened to taste the way an apple should taste. Cherries are also grown at the orchard and have built a fine reputation for large, sweet, tree ripened fruit.

Our roadside stall sells our fruit direct from the orchard to you during the picking season. At Wilgro Orchards the fruit is grown as naturally as possible with very low chemical and fertiliser usage. At times when there is only limited passing trade or the orchard is particularly busy we have to depend on the "honesty system" and the stall is not always manned all day. We can usually have someone in attendance if we are notified in advance.

Snowy Valleys Way Touring Route


The Snowy Valleys Way, running from Gundagai, New South Wales to Beechworth Victoria, is a touring route encompassing over 300 kilometres of breathtaking scenery and landscapes, and a whole swag of things to see and do 'along the way'.

The route starts in the hills of Gundagai, home of the famous 'Dog on the Tuckerbox', and winds its way south through Tumut, Batlow, and Tumbarumba, crossing the Murray River at Towong, and continuing south through Corryong, and Yackandandah, ending in Beechworth, Victoria.

A picturesque slice of Australia, the Snowy Valleys Way offers its travellers spectacular outdoor activities, colourful festivals, towns to explore, and a laid-back rural charm that distinguishes it from other popular tourist drives.

Old Mountain Road Walking Track


Set out along the trail from Jounama Creek campground, and you'll soon meet the trackhead for the short but heart-pumping Old Mountain Road walking track. This high-energy walk heads uphill above the creek valley, but is well worth the effort for the breathtaking views of Bogong Peaks, Jounama Pondage and Blowering Reservoir.
The track follows Talbingo Mountain's first road, built in 1860 during the Kiandra gold rush. Today, the only traffic you're likely to see is a colourful variety of birdlife, including yellow-tailed black cockatoos. In summer, wildflowers such as purple kunzea and white-flowered tea tree bloom on the lower slopes.
Return the same way (add 1hr), enjoying the downhill track and detour to pretty Jounama Creek, near the campground.?It's an?ideal spot for a picnic and to paddle your feet after the walk, or to simply sit quietly and watch for wallabies and eastern grey kangaroos.

Kunama: Events

Batlow CiderFest


Batlow CiderFest is a full-on community street party celebrating the end of the harvest of Batlow's iconic apples (think Jazz, Bonza, Pink Lady, and everyone's favourites Granny Smith and Red Delicious).

Growers, cider producers, locals and their visitors enjoy some hard-earned down time after the long months of cultivating, growing, picking and packing, before winter sets in on the Snowy Mountains.

It's a street party not to be missed. Two stages host local talent and approximately 80 market stalls offer boutique ciders, gourmet food, locally grown produce, and tempting homemade treats.

Set in Batlow's main street the atmosphere sizzles with buskers and street theatre including a troupe of home-grown Apple Tarts who lead the dance.

Against a backdrop of trees in glorious autumn colours, the aroma of food from around the globe and of course, the sound of fresh cider being poured in clear mountain air stirs the senses.

On the professional side, the Festival hosts a cider industry and Farm Gate Enterprise conference the day prior to the Festival. It attracts delegates from across Australia wanting to increase their knowledge and share their experience in this exciting emerging industry.
