Located in the Snowy Mountains high country, Tumbarumba is a great base for exploring alpine areas.
Tumbarumba is a small town about 470 kilometres (5 hr drive) south west of Sydney and 110 km (85 min drive) from the regional city of Wagga Wagga.
Located on the western edge of the Snowy Mountains, outdoor activities such as bushwalking, horse riding, mountain biking and fly-fishing are very popular.
The closest airport is Wagga Wagga Airport, about a 70 min drive from Tumbarumba. Regional Express (Rex), JetGo and QantasLink offer flights from Wagga Wagga to Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
Tumbarumba Multi Purpose Service includes a 42-bed public hospital delivering a range of aged, medical and community nursing services. Of the 42 beds, 33 are funded for residential aged care. Visiting allied health, dental and mental health services are provided from Tumut and Wagga Wagga. Refurbishment and extension of the service began in November 2017, including new inpatient and residential aged care facilities, and a larger emergency department.
There is an Ambulance Service of NSW station in Tumbarumba.
