Nestled near the banks of the picturesque Murrumbidgee River, Comfort Inn Sovereign offers true country hospitality to guests exploring all that the area has to offer.

 

Folklore Hot Spot

Based in the Riverina region of NSW, Gundagai is the uniquely Australian and has often been used as a haven for songwriters and poets. Aussie legend Slim Dusty wrote and recorded “Along the Road to Gundagai” about the beautiful town, which you can check out below.

Dog on the Tuckerbox

The classic Australian story of a drover’s dog that guards his owner’s tucker box has been immortalised forever in the form of a grand statue that can be found about 8kms north of Gundagai. With cafes and walking trails right nearby, why not grab a bite to eat (and a photo) with the country’s best known four legged friend.

The Prince Alfred Bridge

First raised in 1866, the Prince Alfred Bridge was the first major crossing on both sides of the Murrumbidgee River. Overcoming the test of time the bridge still stands today, and while it’s unable to be used, its sturdy form is a testament to the skills of the engineers who constructed it.
