Here are some photos of the colourful flowers and trees of the huge gardens surrounding the house of my home stay at Tumut. There are many plants here, including a huge collection of plants from all over Australia. I have to thank Aamer (VT member NukeDoc) for arranging this fantastic stay here!
My friend Aamer (VT member NukeDoc) arranged for me to have a homestay while at Tumut. The house is situation among the rolling hills and farmland, with the Tumut River just in front and views of the mountains (see photos).
Also, there are huge gardens surrounding the house and slope in-front of it, with many colourful flowers as well as native Australian plants including huge trees. It was really an enjoyable stay. Please go to part 2 of this tip for more information and photos.
There are plenty of places around the Tumut Dam for camping... Most places don't allow dogs as they are in a National Park but you will find some areas for dogs too.
There are some areas with toilets, showers etc but most will be true camping without any of those facilities. :)
The Thomas Boyd Trackhead is a great place for camping...it is right on the Hume & Hovell Walking Track and the river is right beside the camping ground.
There are also toilets, an undercover BBQ area, hot & cold water and plenty of premade camp fire places...
