DRIVING TO TALMALMO COTTAGE

To get to our property, there is a good gravel road in both directions. If you come from the Hobrook direction, it is bitumen until you reach Jingellic, then turn right at the x-roads and it is 17kms of gravel road from Jingellic. If you are coming through Woomargama, you will travel through the Woomargama National Park on bitumen road for 20kms until you turn left at the gravel road “T” intersection, proceed another 18kms on gravel road to our property. Keep an eye out for our “Ned Kelpie” letterbox as indicated by the photo opposite.

It is always better to arrive here in the daylight hours to take in the scenery and to avoid Kangaroos, Wombats and other native animals while driving through the National Park.
