Tumbarumba via Elliott Way to Khancoban

One of the best day trips is the route through the mountains from Tumbarumba to Khancoban via Cabramurra. The views are impressive and you will get a very good look at the Snowy Mountains Scheme. From Tumbarumba take the Tooma Road south to the Elliott Way, which takes you through part of Maragle State Forest and stands of magnificent Mountain Ash.

The road climbs steeply down to the Tumut River valley, giving tantalizing glimpses of Talbingo Reservoir, until it reaches O'Hare's Rest Area. From here you will cross the river 5 times before
the steep climb up to Cabramurra.

The road from Cabramurra to Khancoban takes you across the dam walls of Tumut Pond and Tooma Reservoir. (This road is closed in winter). Khancoban provides good views of the pipelines that deliver water to Murray 1 and 2 power stations.

Drive along Spillway Road on top of the dam wall at Khancoban Pondage for a stunning view of the mountains across the water.
Picnic Spots: Clover Flat, Bradleys & O'Briens Hut, Khancoban Boat Ramp.

Dont miss the Lady Hudson Rose Garden in Mitchell Street. This garden is a memorial to the thousands of workers who lived around Khancoban during the construction of the Snowy Scheme.

For information on the Kosciuszko National Park, books, maps and park use permits, visit the National Parks and Wildlife office on the corner of Scott & Mitchell Streets.



Food and fuel are available at Cabramurra General Store and at Khancoban.
