About Ribbonwood Cottages & Photos
Ribbonwood Cottages offers a unique Tumut experience with fully self contained cottages situated on a 100 acre working farm with cattle and horses and a half kilometre of private Tumut River frontage.
An ideal location for trout fishing, boating, wildlife watching situated at the gateway to the Snowy Mountains and a perfect base for exploring the surrounding region. The property boasts it’s own private 3 acre island, opening up another kilometre of river frontage. Enjoy catching your own fish on the banks of the beautiful Tumut River. This historic property was the site of one of the 2 original settlements of Tumut and was where the first bridge over the river was built. It is home to the largest English Elm tree in the southern hemisphere. The fertile river flats were first used for growing tobacco and then during the 1900’s, for the growing of millet. Don McDonald (Brett’s grandfather) was one of the pioneers of the local millet industry and the famous Tumut millet brooms.
Six generations of local knowledge within the same family ensures your stay will be warm, welcoming and full of local information. Our cottages come complete with antique furniture and are personally maintained to the highest standards. Your host Brett has a lifetime of experience fishing the local rivers, creeks and dams and offers free fishing tuition to all guests.
