Gundagai is another New South Wales town that we visited on our recent trip to Melbourne. I've often wanted to stop and take photos in this area and, as time was no object, we found two very good lookouts on hills to the north and south of the town. (Click for enlargement and more detail.)
Very long bridge carrying the Hume Highway over the Murrumbidgee River flats.
Two now unused bridges - road bridge on the left (this is where the highway used to run) and railway bridge on the right.
The hills are as dry and bare as can be.
View to the north. Green area would be irrigated from the Murrumbidgee River.
View over the town of about 2000 people.
Hume Highway descending the hill into the town.
Bridges from the south side of town.
Views over the Murrumbidgee.
If you click on this photo and enlarge it you will see a small stone cairn in the right third of the photo, among the trees. This is where the town used to be before being swept away in a flood in 1852 killing 89 of the then 250 residents.
