One of the main bases for the Snowy Mountains Hydro Electric Scheme Tumut is located in the valley of the river that bears its name. Superb trout fishing is a principle highlight of this picturesque area, and the Blowering Dam Trout Hatchery is worth a visit for its sheer scale (it is the largest in Australia).

The Tumut Region has natural wonders you can explore all year round with tremendous diversity ranging from huge inland lakes, clean streams, and gently sloped pastures to vast pine forests, peaked mountains, the enormous Snowy Mountains Scheme, one of the great engineering wonders of the modern world and the many attractions of the northern end of Kosciuszko National Park.

Rivers and dams provide fishers with plenty of opportunities for Trout and native fish. Swimming, canoeing or rafting on the lakes or water skiing, windsurfing, sailing and recreational boating are extremely popular here.
