Tumut

Beautiful town nestled in the Tumut Valley at the foothills of the Snowy Mountains. By any measure Tumut is an exceptionally pretty country town.

The Tumut River flows along the edge of the town and the plains spread out on either side of the river. The foothills of the Snowy Mountains rise on all sides.

Tumut is located 423 km from Sydney and 180 km from Canberra via the Hume Highway. The main access to the town is via Gundagai.

The town's name is derived from 'doomut' which was an Aboriginal word for 'camping ground' or 'quiet resting place by the river' and over the years this evolved to 'toomut', 'tumat' and eventually Tumut.

The town became a municipality in 1887 and the Tumut Shire, including Batlow and Adelong was created in 1928.

The Wiradjuri Aboriginal people lived in the valley for thousands of years prior to European settlement. A small number still live in the tiny village of Brungle some 20 kilometres from the town.
