Tumbarumba Branch


Track: 128.99 km
Stations: 1 / 16 in use

The Tumbarumba branch extends from the major inland city of Wagga Wagga in the state's central south to the small town of Tumbarumba in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range. From Wagga, the line meanders through rolling hills to Tarcutta. Beyond here, the the line follows the Umbango Creek valley. The line briefly enters forested country before paralleling the main road before terminating in the hills above Tumbarumba.

Much of the line was abandoned after it was damaged by floods in 1974. The rest was closed in 1987.

A group based in Wagga Wagga, Tumba Rail, are working on restoring part of the line and running rail trikes over it.
