4WD/Motorbikes in the Tumut Region
Both the northern end of Kosciuszko National Park and the native and plantation forests surrounding the townships offer plenty of challenges for bush drivers and riders.
Cross the Jounama Dam Wall from Talbingo to reach the western shores of Blowering. Take the back roads to Batlow, Buddong Falls, Hume and Hovell Lookout, the Sugar Pine Walk and many other hidden treasures. While the main tracks are passable in 2WD in the dry, smaller roads and wet weather is a different story. Some of the less accessible spots will offer a challenge to the most experienced 4WD driver.
In Kosciuszko National Park you can take a drive along the Broken Cart fire trail or the Lobs Hole Ravine Road.
