Great stop, great Australian icon.

Stopped on the way to Canberra for a coffee and a break, the dog and surrounds needs a refurb. Staff were friendly and helpful.

I have to admit that I was expecting a much bigger statue -- but this one is literally just life size! A nice break to stop on a road trip between Canberra and Albury. There is also a shop there where you can grab a snack.

Was pretty disappointed we traveled from Melbourne heading to Canberra and stopped here for a rest break big mistake it was un kept we couldn't use the toilets as we didn't purchase from the cafe. There was no signage or information about the historical house that is there or what's left of it. Other than seeing the dog in the... More

Choose this cafe over Oliver's. Much better service, food, coffee and hot chocolate drinks. Also a gift shop.

Turn off the main highway to see this Australian legend. The statue of the dog is small and sits on a plinth in a fountain pool. Smaller than I imagined, surrounded by a display of old farming stuff and a gift shop/cafe. Plenty of parking for cars and vans. Heading south? Start here then go on into Gundagai itself for...

I am glad I visited this famous Aussie icon. The dog is cute and the coffee from the service station was good value. It made for a nice early morning break from Tumbarumba.

An old Australian legend, ticked the box. I wouldn't be rushing off to revisit. Very basic statue near a very basic town

It must be an Aus thing,the statue is nothing special,smaller than expected,there is a gift shop and coffee shop there and toilets if you need them but you can get better services up the road at the truck stop,not being from Aus I don't get it.

Seems to me every traveller who has done the Hume Hwy between Melbourne and Sydney stops at this famous landmark. However, there seems to be a new twist, take along your pooch and take a photo with the dog monument. There were several peeps doing it the day we went..A little old bullocky dray and remnants of an old house... More
