“If you’re renting a hut in the Tumut ranger district, this is the place to visit. You don’t have a choice, this is THE place to visit. But just because they’re insistent you stop by doesn’t mean you won’t enjoy the experience. To ease the pain they have a museum and all sorts of gifts for you to buy, like wind chimes, posters, postcards, and caps. The stuff is great! Come for the rental and stay for the gifts.”—Kyle von Hoetzendorff

“I got fired from the Tumut Ranger station a couple years ago for exploring the internet on my own time. It was my OWN time and on my own time I should be free to express myself, and that includes expressing myself through my online search choices. These people are puritanical fascists, I wouldn’t recommend going there, no matter how nice the hut you’re looking to rent may be”—Lance Hume

If you’re bound for the Snowy Mountains we’re the last town on this side of the range worth a damn. We’ve got food, beverages, fishing supplies, even DVDs for rent. Is there any reason to shop anywhere else? We didn’t think so either.

“The turnoff to Talbingo is at the very bottom of a very steep section of the Snowy Mountain Highway. We could see what we were in for. It wasn’t happening without supplies. Were we judicious? Did we keep in mind that whatever we bought we were going to have to lug up this hill to Wolgal Hut? No. We bought whiskey, canned tuna, coconut milk, rice, cookies, and a bunch of other foodstuffs. I blame it on the excellent merchandising strategy of the Talbingo Supermarket; this combined with their surprisingly deep selection of items led us to possibly over-buy. However our dinner was fantastic.”—Kyle von Hoetzendorff

“The wife and I head to Talbingo for every holiday and of course we do all of our shopping at this market, it’s the only one! Not that it would matter, if you’re thinking about opening another market in this town you better think twice!”—Mike Dudley

You might be headed to the Yarrangobilly hot springs and caves. Well don’t get ahead of yourself! Stop here for a spot of relaxation and tranquility before heading up the jeep track. You might even want to dip your toes into the water.

“Our crew was getting pretty hot by the time we hit the Yarrangobilly Alpine Parking Lot. We had just ridden our bikes up the hill from Tumut. Fortunately there’s a tidy little creek running through the place, some well-kept grass, and a few picnic tables spread around for us passers-through to utilize. There were also some pre-established car camping spots if you are so inclined. We dipped our toes in the water and chilled for a bit. If you need to chill for a bit and you’re in the area, by all means you should chill here.”—Kyle von Hoetzendorff

Wolgal Hut in historic Kiandra offers comfy lodge accommodation with nearby walking, skiing and fishing in Kosciuszko National Park. It maybe (probably) is haunted, but folks, that only adds to the experience.

“We arrived to Wolgal Hut at dusk, a blood red sunset setting the sky on fire. Was this a sign? A group of us had just ridden up from Tumut on our bicycles. The hut is well appointed: clean sheets, cooking utensils, hot water, and even a gas fireplace. We didn’t expect this level of luxury! It was very nice. The only caveat is that it’s haunted. Three out of the four people in our group experienced night terrors that specifically revolved around the hut. Like, there was a paranormal moment when all the lights flicked on after we had all got to bed. Still, none of us died, so maybe this is more of an amusement-haunting rather than a violent haunting?”—Kyle von Hoetzendorff
