Gundagai is a great place. It is quite small but within east driving of other towns.
The town has a long and interesting history, most of which is on display in the local private museum.
I guess the only disappointment is that "The Dog on the Tuckerbox" is not in the town but 6KM north along the Hume Highway, and is much smaller than expected. The precinct though is tastefully developed with cafes and displays.
Surprisingly, the town has a Woolies and a Coles Express, but no Coles.
The town has some fabulous old buildings to see which are still habitable.
Having spent so much time travelling around flat WA, we find the scenery here quite stunning. And, although rainfall has been scarce the major rivers have plenty of water. There are some fantastic camping sites in the area.
The Gundagai Tourist Park is unique because all of the 'van ensuite sites are under cover. This is ideal in hot weather weather but when another van is parked under the same cover, noise is amplified. Fortunately this happened only once so far.
Tomorrow we leave for Tumut, for 8 nights.
