|We left the van in Wagga and went on a day trip to see the Dog on the Tuckerbox in Gundagai. It was a lot smaller than I had imagined but well worth the trip.
The town is geared for tourists but they grab at any claim to fame.
We had a beautiful lunch at the Niagara Cafe made famous by the visit of Prime Minister John Curtain in 1942 but it turns out that the cafe was rebuilt in 1975 after it was gutted by fire.
We had a couple of beers in the Criterion Hotel which houses murals of bushranger holdups and imagined scenes of the 1852 flood. A fellow with only one ear gave us lots of historical information on the area.
The 360 degree scene from Mount Parnassus Lookout showed views up and down the Murrumbidgee Valley. The bridge is built over the floodplain, which looks like it could flood at any time.
I also loved the statues of Dad, Dave, Mum and Mabel. I listen to the show on the wireless every Wednesday morning at home.
