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.

Travellers can choose their own adventure - bushwalks or four-wheel driving, horse riding or mountain bikes. Paddle, fish or water-ski the numerous lakes, rivers and streams or simply relax by their foreshores.

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.
