“It’s a postcard come to life” were the first words our presenter Lizzy Lovette said driving into Tumut for this story! This picturesque town on the banks of the Tumut River is a charming place to base yourself for a holiday.
Just a 4.5 hour drive from Sydney – or a one hour flight to Wagga Wagga where you can hire a car for the rest of the trip – Tumut is a must visit destination! Here, Lizzy hooks up with fly fishing guide, Rod Bennett, at Elm Cottage which is a top place to stay on the banks of the Goobarragandra River and a gorgeous place to fish.
Back in town, thirsts are quenched at the Tumut River Brewing Company which is a MICRO brewery with a MIGHTY 24 beers on tap! Here you can meet the “Brew Crew”, try their beers, have lunch, and do a tour of the brewery – what a way to spend an afternoon! Back to the river… and Lizzy’s found luxury accommodation at Nimbo Fork Lodge – a picturesque spot where the Tumut River meets Nimbo Creek. Here, your private cottage looks over the water making falling asleep to the sound of a running river simply heaven!
