Attraction details
Owner description: Stocking local produce and a wide range of souvenirs, Gundagai Visitor Information Centre is located on the left hand side of the main street (Sheridan Street) as you come into town. The friendly staff can guide you to all the attractions Gundagai has to offer. Take the Heritage Walking Tour to capture the essence of this historic and fascinating township. Gundagai's best kept secret is Rusconi`s Marble Masterpiece on display at the Visitors Centre, 20,948 pieces of carved NSW marble taking 28 years to complete. This one man`s hobby has become a must see. Enquire at the counter for an audio tour of the old Gundagai Gaol, where Captain Moonlight the bushranger was sentenced and spent the night. In Carberry Park adjacent to the centre are the Dad, Dave, Mum and Mabel copper statues, wonderfully sculptured by Aurel Ragus. The visitor centre also books Greyhound and VLine and Trainlink coach and train services and sells cruise holidays, plus travel insurance.

Reviewed January 12, 2013

Staff were very helpful and provided a map to explore Gundagai. The walk highlighted on the map was about 2 kilometres although you had the option to take a detour to make the walk a little longer. Map covered most of the main historical attractions in Gundagai and was fairly straight forward. Rusconi's masterpiece is an amazing piece of craftmanship and testament to the dedication one man had over 28 years of his life to his passion.

Suggest a good half day if you just wish to quickly view the attractions or a nice liesurely full day if you wish to spend a bit more time at each attraction.....all attractions are within walking distance if you are like me (48 and slightly overweight) and can be comfortably achieved. Good walking shoes and plenty of water are a necessity.

After exploring Gundagai take a quick trip up to the lookouts...nothing too special but gives a good indication of where the town lays in regards to the mountains around it.

The best thing was seeing Rusconi's Masterpiece in marble. It is marvelous the work that went into making this piece of art.

“Significant history for the area”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Second longest bridge in Australia, although no longer in use, has incredible history, interesting to read about the history of the bridge, especially when I had no idea about the bridge or why it was named the Prince Alfred Bridge.

Worth a visit.
