Sport and Recreation Events

Fish, boating, golfing, bowls, cycling, swimming, football, tennis and squash are just some of the activities which can be enjoyed in Gundagai.


The Murrumbidgee attracts fishers from many places. Its junction with the Tumut River is a favourtie fishing spot. Cold water from the Snowy Scheme dams supplies plentiful trout to the Murrumbidgee at Gundagai, together with Murray cod, yellowbelly and bream.

Other excellent fishing streams in the Riverina Highlands include the Goobragandra and Adjungbilly, and anglers also enjoy good catches from Blowering, Jounama, Talbingo and Burrinjuck Dams.
A boat ramp is located 3kms along the
Nangus Road .


The Bidgee Banks golf course nestles between the gums on the banks of the Murrumbidgee and two creeks that meander across the river flat. The 18-hole grass green course, 5409m in length, has a par of 70 and was officially opened in 1995. Golfers are provided with unique blend of challenging and innocent holes. In most cases distance is generally not a premium during the round. However, the design and natural features of the course will test the ability of all golfers.

Tennis & Squash

Three outdoor tennis courts, synthetic grass, with night lights, are available all year round.

Lawn Bowls

The Club has two bowling greens which have hosted state events.

Swimming Pool

Gundagai Olympic Pool opens from 1 November to end of March and is located next door to the tourist park.

Cycle Track

A paved, shared off-road cycle track links North and South Gundagai . It runs through picturesque sheltered parkland along the side of Morleys Creek , the golf course and across the historic Prince Alfred Bridge over the Murrumbidgee River . The track is great for a cycling break with the kids or a walk to unwind after a hard day on the road.
