Recreational facilities

Maginnity's Historical Walking Trail

Walking tracks:Yes

This walking track, opened in 2009, was a joint project between the Tumbarumba Historical Society, Tumbarumba Shire Council, Department of Corrective Services and Forestry Corporation.

It leaves from the memorial to Sergeant David Maginnity and takes walkers along the old Carabost to Coppabella road to the site where recently conducted research has identified where Sergeant Maginnity was fatally shot by the infamous bushranger, Dan Morgan.

The walk is within Mundaroo Flora Reserve — a unique and appealing open forest ecosystem, where a range of interesting vegetation including grass trees and orchids can be observed at different times of the year.

Hume and Hovell Walking track

Walking tracks:Yes

A great adventure for those who enjoy hiking or are interested in Australian history.

This 440km track stretches between Yass and Albury, retracing the route of explorers Hamilton Hume and William Hovell on their expedition to Port Phillip in 1824.

Fully sign-posted, the track takes about 24 days to walk, although there are plenty of opportunities for various day walks.

Major track heads can be accessed via Wee Jasper, Cootamundra River (near Tumut) and Henry Angel (near Tumbarumba).

There are 18 campsites along the route, and the track passes through Buccleuch, Bago, Mannus and Munderoo State Forests.

More information on the track, including maps, is available from Visitor Information Centres throughout the region.
