Dog On The Tucker Box, Gundagai
(3.2/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
For over 80 years Dog On The Tucker Box, a historical monument and tourist attraction, has been a favorite resting place for travelers from around the world. Erected in 1926, the monument was sculpted by stonemason Frank Rusconi as a tribute to early European pioneers who settled this region. Inspired by a bullock driver’s poem, which celebrates the life of an allegorical driver’s dog that loyally guarded the man’s lunch box, the dog monument features a wishing well at its base, set up to collect money for a local hospital. Souvenirs of the famous dog can be purchased at a small shop nearby.

  • Nice spot to stop for a drink and stretch legs on the 4 or so hour drive between Canberra and Albury. Cafe and toilet next to statue.

  • Theres a tuckerbox burger recommended by some guy called nev.I dunno who nev is but he didnt have the best taste in burgers
  • It's a good place to go~ please enter the gift shop and you will find out a lot of things about life ( especially from a lady's point of view). VERY FUNNY!
  • Worth a visit. Gift store has some unique gifts but the food is expensive. It is in desperate need of a makeover but still worth a photo opportunity.
  • A must visit for old time's sake if on the Hume. Was disappointed that it was shut on Melbourne Cup Day, was desperate for a coffee and to use the amenities. Had to go to the servo instead, would have preferred to spend my money there.
  • Historic tourist attraction just outside Gundagai. Some interesting history, sadly the facility has seen better days and could do with a little TLC. A good place to stop for a picnic on the way to Melbourne, Snowy Mountains etc.
