“Nice story, tourist trap”

Dog On The Tucker Box
Reviewed May 9, 2013

Ok, I love a loyal dog story. This is one. A good stop on a long boring drive. Yes, it is a tourist trap, but one worth stopping.

I can now say I’ve been to the Dog on the Tucker Box. It’s not that exciting but obviously you have to do it. There are some nice displays in the garden and the cafe/shop has some old wares as well as your usual souvenirs. The cafe we saw up the road when we drove off looked nicer though!

A great stop on the way back to Sydney. The cafe and souvenir shop are really good. The dog on the tucker box is an amazing
aussie icon well worth a visit.

I had not been before and the Dog sits on his tuckerbox and poses perfectly for every photo. Plenty of people there and cameras going off left, right and centre. Also, a young boy playing the bagpipes to earn some money was a nice edition to the experience.

Well, it is really just a statue of a dog on a tucker box with a bit of history about the song - and that is about the only reason for even stopping there. There is a tourist info centre that has seen better days. The surrounding 'gardens' and picnic area have been improved since my previous visit - quite a few years ago.
