Description:

Stocking local produce and a wide range of souvenirs, Gundagai Visitor...

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.

The staff with whom we spoke were very helpful, informative and friendly and we could pick up local wines (no tasting). Didn't know about the marble masterpiece or Rusconi until we got there. $5.00 entry fee to display totally worth it. An amazing piece of craftsmanship, the masterpiece is literally amazing made from marble sourced from the district and surrounds.... More

It is worth a visit to this centre just to see the marble masterpiece. It costs $5 to see it but I think it was money well spent. It took 28 years to build and it is perfect. The information centre, itself, has your usual souvenirs and drinks and snacks. The young lady working at the centre was friendly and... More

Lovely ladies at the info centre ready with tales of local historical identities, help with the cheesy tshirt hunt, and directions to the nearest (fill in the blank, but in my case petrol station, pharmacy, and toilets). Thanks good people, making travellers welcome.👍👍👍

Great place to go to get all the information you need to walk to the sights of Gundagai (not the lookouts, drive to these). Friendly staff talk you through the walking map and off you go. Many historic buildings but the highlight was the wooden railway station that has been restored by volunteers. If you are lucky enough you will... More

It was my second visit to this information centre and the lady was very helpful. She sad she was new to the centre but she was able to give us enough information to make us happy. I had seen Rusconi's Marblepece last time I was there and it was a work of art.

headphones and audio is available and you could undertake a tour of th told Gundagai Gaol at your own pace. It's mad of all local slate and people were often imprisoned for crimes such as furious riding of leaving your job. Captain Moonlite (Andrew George Scott) was famously held here in the 1880's after the Wantabadgery shootout.

I wasn't expecting this to be so good. We went in as a family, kinda thinking we'd driven a long way so we ought to see something, and gave this single feature exhibition a go.
