No visit to the Tumut Region would be complete without stopping off to marvel at the feat that is the Snowy Hydro Scheme.

Consisting of sixteen major dams,  seven power stations and one pumping station, there's plenty to see and do throughout the system for those looking for a day trip from Tumut.

The closest point to visit from Tumut, Talbingo is also the largest power station in the scheme (Tumut 3) and offers a snapshot of the scheme in operation along with scenic walks and drives to explore Jounama Pondage.

Just a 40 minute drive from Tumut, Talbingo is the perfect place to start your tour of the Snowy. For more information about what's on offer at Talbingo visit Snowy Hydro.
