Surrounded by idyllic mountain peaks, natural bushland, expansive vineyards, lush agricultural pastures, and crystal-clear streams brimming with trout – Tumbarumba enjoys a mountain climate, favoured for award-winning vineyards, grass-fed beef and lamb, blueberries bursting with favour, and plantation forestry. Rain falls mostly in winter and spring, perfect for the grapes destined to make up the region’s cold climate wines.

Tumbarumba and surrounds…

Tumbarumba is home to the Tumbarumba to Rosewood Rail Trail, a vibrant, revitalised track for walking and cycling that stretches from Figures Street Tumbarumba along the historical rail corridor to McEachern Lane in Rosewood.

Paddys River Falls has long been a popular spot for locals and is becoming a must-see site for visitors. Lookouts located a short walk from the parking area provide perfect views of the falls and the landscape downstream. To get a closer look, follow the walkway to the bottom. During the warmer months the cool spray of water as the falls hit the pool and rocks below provides refreshing relief from the heat. To get there, follow the Tooma Road from Tumbarumba for 18 kilometres as it meanders through the countryside.

Tumbarumba’s History

Investigate our history through the Tumbarumba Museum (located at the Tumbarumba Visitor Information Centre), where you’ll find fascinating displays on the gold mining, timber and cattleman’s heritage of the area, as well as special exhibitions. The nearby Pioneer Women’s Hut and National Quilt Museum is dedicated to the preservation of domestic objects belonging to rural families, especially women. The displays are unusual in that most objects are able to be handled, and a lot of work has gone into collecting the stories behind the articles. By putting the articles into the context of women’s daily lives, the collection takes on meaning. There is always a local person available to talk to visitors, and this museum has been run entirely by community volunteers since it opened in 1985.
