You'll find the Tumbarumba Motel nestled in the heart of the High Country in New South Wales, Australia, on the western side of the stunning Snowy Mountains. To the south our area reaches Mount Kosciuszko, with the iconic Murray River forming its western border.

Famous for its mountains, rivers, lakes, parklands, forests and farms, the Tumbarumba Shire is perfect for bush walking, horse riding, fishing and cycling.

And with all that clean fresh air, you'll sleep soundly every night!

The area has a fascinating history full of stories about goldmining, timber cutters and cattle. In more recent times the engineering feats of the Snowy Mountains Hydro-electric Scheme enriched not just the physical landscape but the cultural one as well.

While we enjoy four distinct seasons, please note that the weather can be changeable in the mountains at any time of the year. In January during the day temperatures can reach over 30ºC, while June nights can plunge to a cold -5ºC. We recommend that you bring clothing suited to all kinds of weather conditions.
