The Dog on the Tucker Box

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Since 1932, the Dog has sat beside the Hume Highway, a favourite stopping place for thousands of travellers. Originally set up to assist Gundagai Hospital, today the Dog still helps the hospital’s vital work with the monies from its wishing well and royalties from some souvenirs. Over the decades it has been celebrated in song and story, and faithfully commemorates the efforts of the European pioneers who settled the region.

The Dog on the Tucker Box Pioneer Monument welcomes visitors with a newly redesigned garden precinct featuring Australian animal figurines, a cafe serving hot and cold refreshments, souvenirs, Australiana, antiques, old wares and a peaceful picnic area away from the busy highway, with plenty of parking (caravans and tourist buses included). Special events benefiting a range of charities are held throughout the year, culminating in the Dog’s Birthday each November.
