We are indeed lucky to have the Snowy Mountains in our backyard.

The Elm cottage experience offers you a 365 day holiday destination!

Yarrangobilly Caves

The Yarrangobilly Caves are located within Kosciuszko National Park and only 77km from Tumut. They are probably the most beautiful caves in Australia and well worth a day visit for you and your family or friends. Guided tours are available underground, or you can take a self guided tour, and of course the Thermal Pool has a constant temperature of 27 Degrees Celsius!

Note Caves are open 7 days a week except for Christmas Day.  Guided tours operate at 10.30am, 11:45am, 1:45pm & 3pm, during Summer (between October & June long weekends) and 11am, 1pm and 3pm during winter. Self-guided tours are available between 9:30am and 4pm

Thermal Pool: Open from dawn until dusk, 27°C all year round. The Yarrangobilly river runs adjacent to the thermal pool so grab your rod and throw in a line, go for a bushwalk or bring your family for a relaxing barbeque in the high country.  Places are limited. 

For bookings please call Yarrangobilly Caves Visitors Centre on (02) 6454 9597.  Payment is non-refundable and is required at time of booking.  To avoid disappointment bookings are recommended. (Phone between 9am – 5pm).

Adelong Falls

Just outside Adelong is the heritage-listed Adelong Falls, a historic gold mining settlement. Fabulous views from the viewing platform down onto the battery complex with its historic mining equipment, and 3 marked trails from which you can explore the historic remains.

Well worth a visit and a great place for a family picnic.


Brumbies abound in our area, with many herds of the free-roaming feral horses to be found in the Snowy Mountain region.

Brumbies are the descendants of escaped or lost horses, dating back in some cases to those belonging to the early European settlers. To some, they are regarded as an environmental pest, but to others they are beautiful specimens living wild and independently of humans.

You can best come across mobs of Brumbies in the forests east of Blowering, or in the evening up on the Snowy Mountains highway towards Selwyn. You should take extreme care driving on the highway at night because of the abundance of wild life, not only including brumbies but also huge mobs of kangaroos as well as other animals. They are prone to stand on the Highway at night and are difficult to see given their natural colours, so cautious driving at a slow speed is recommended.
