The Monarch Tumut - A little bit of luxury

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

For your added security, this property is only managed in Australia and we never request payments be made to overseas bank accounts.

The results are remarkable. As soon as you arrive you'll notice an incredible sense of light and space, while the rich character of the house remains.

A short stroll takes you to shops, restaurants, parks and the picturesque Tumut River. All the fun and adventure of the ski fields is only a one-hour drive.

At the Monarch, you're worlds away from cheerless motels and noisy hotels.

A superior accommodation experience for a romantic retreat, a reunion with friends or family, or a sanctuary from business commitments.

The House

At the Monarch, attention to the smallest detail is simply part of the service.

You're surrounded by comfort in every room, with an eclectic blend of French provincial style and modern furniture adding to the ambience.

Enjoy: plus a sitting room with a sofa bed.

Dine at nearby local restaurants, relax around the barbecue or take advantage of the fully equipped state-of-the-art kitchen. Tea and coffee is supplied, and breakfast trays can be provided on request.

The Tumut Region

Tucked in the south west of New South Wales our region is spectacular in natural beauty and diversity.

Tumut is approximately 410 kilometres south-west of Sydney, 525 kilometres north-east of Melbourne and 180 km from Canberra via the Hume Highway.

The main access to the town is via Gundagai (34 km) with roads going through both Gocup and Brungle. The town itself has an elevation of 280 m above sea level which means that it is located so that it has four distinct seasons. There is some confusion about the origins of the town's name. One popular version is that 'doomut' was an Aboriginal word for 'camping ground' or 'quiet resting place by the river' and that over the years this evolved to 'toomut', 'tumat' and eventually Tumut.

The region enjoys four distinct seasons, each with its own charm - the richness of colour in Autumn, the playgrounds of the snowfields in Winter, the bright blossoms in Springtime, and the spectacular tracts of water and aquatic recreational activities in Summer.

The Tumut Region has natural wonders you can explore all year round with tremendous diversity ranging from huge inland lakes, clean streams, and gently sloped pastures to vast pine forests, peaked mountains, the enormous Snowy Mountains Scheme, one of the great engineering wonders of the modern world and the many attractions of the northern end of the sensational Kosciuszko National Park.

Summer streams are cool, and clean. Rivers and dams provide fishers with plenty of opportunities for Trout and native fish. Swimming, canoeing or rafting on the lakes or water skiing, windsurfing, sailing and recreational boating are extremely popular here.

The whole family can enjoy the network of marked walking tracks that bring mountain streams, high peaks and fabulous views within easy reach.

Close by are features like the magnificent Buddong Falls, Yarrangobilly Caves in Kosciuszko National Park, the Sugar Pine Walk and Arboretum in State Forests and the horticulture industry where you can pick your own fruit. You can also retrace the steps of the European explorers along the Hume and Hovell Walking Track. More challenging tracks are a plenty too!

The area is also famous for the legacy of the goldrush days of the last century where you can discover pioneer-era huts, with Adelong offering some of the best preserved ruins of former goldworkings in the State.

You can hang glide and enjoy golf, bowls, tennis, squash, swimming, and horseriding. In fact, all sports and activities are available within the Tumut region.

Winter brings new enjoyment in the snow for the entire family. Selwyn Snowfields offer fabulous skiing only an hour's drive from Tumut, and half an hour from Talbingo providing tobogganing, downhill Skiing.
