The Gums

You'll find the tiny settlement of The Gums, at the junction of the Leichhardt Highway and the Tara-Surat Road, 27 kilometres west of Tara. The town's quaint historic church and tiny bush school date back to early twentieth century.

Named after a nearby spot drovers used to meet in bygone days, The Gums is a tranquil location, perfect for a 'smoko' stop in your travels or a great short-term campsite to pitch your tent or park the van. The Gums Nature Reserve offers opportunities to see native birds, flora and fauna in natural surrounds.
