Tumut Valley Violets


Tumut Valley Violets is a small business with a difference, it started off as a hobby in the early 1980's and is now a major tourist attraction in the Tumut region.

Set in the grounds of the old Tumut Plains school (established circa 1878), amid cottage gardens and two acres of trees, just seven kilometres from Tumut town centre.

It is the largest collection of African Violet in Australia and enthusiasts come from all over Australia and overseas to see them.

The Garden cafe is open Wednesday to Sunday and renowned for its scrumptious home-made Devonshire Teas or great coffee. Soft drink is available for the young ones. Coaches and groups are most welcome.

They carry a full range of products and accessories to propagate your own African Violets from leaves that can be selected from their stock plants.

Blowering Dam


Famous as the site of the world water-speed record in 1978, Blowering Dam is one of the biggest dams in NSW. At three times the size of Sydney Harbour, Blowering Dam stores water released upstream for hydro-electricity generation in the Snowy Mountains Scheme and for irrigation.

The reservoir is a popular spot for all water sports, including skiing, jet skis, sailing, canoeing and swimming. Several boat ramps are available at camping grounds around the lake foreshore. The dam is stocked with Murray cod, golden perch and silver perch. Trout and other fish species are present.

The dam and its tributaries are closed to trout fishing between the June and October long weekends.

The access road to Blowering Dam is a short drive south of Tumut.

Tumut Community Labyrinth for Peace


The Tumut Labyrinth celebrates the community service of its citizens in times of peace and conflict. Located at Pioneer Park, this place of contemplation and reflection can be used by young and old, together or alone.

The path is wide enough to enable two people to walk together, including carers of children and those less able. Its width also facilitates access by wheelchair or motorised scooters. The way-stations provide places on the journey for rest and further reflection. Local stories of Indigenous and European settlement, revealed on test panels in the way-stations, also facilitate group use such as by schools or community groups.
