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

It was awesome to stop and see the dog on the tucker box. i have stopped heaps of times here and each time I get something different out of the place. Doesn't matter is you are on the way to Sydney or from Sydney stop grab some food and take a break.. Its a piece of Australian History..

It was good to see the Dog on the Tuckerbox. Being Very early in the morning we decided to get some breakfast as well. Food was ok but the highlight was seeing the statue.

On the way to Sydney (road trip) we decided to make a visit to this must see AUSSIE icon, great little stop to take a break, grab some food (purchase a souvenir) scenery is set among gumtrees (you can't help but think of the song by John Williamson 'home Among the gumtrees') 🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺

This place really needs some refurbishment. The statue and it's story are interesting but the area is crying out for some help. There is an old general store which sells some take away type food and some souvenirs. but not much else. The only toilets are part of the shop and are signposted as strictly for customers only. However there... More

Probably something one does which is quintessentially Australian is to stop and look at and take a photo of the Dog on the Tucker Box - cafe next door serves excellent works burgers and meat pies - also very oz. Probably more relaxing is to eat an equally good and very large pie from the backer in town in the... More

We have visited here before and the second time around was more for a food stop. It's something that's great to get a photo and say you have seen it, but other than that there isn't any real attempt to create a heritage area which is a pity. The food at the cafe is not terribly priced but the staff... More

Thought this iconic statue would be better supported with playground & facilities. Didn't go to nearby cafes though. Think could do with an upgrade!

Not a bad place to drop in, but nothing special either. For your average tourist it's worth a pit stop, a pie, a photo and a stubby cooler.

It's a bit of history and we stoped by when having a quick breakfast nearby Only go if close, especially if a hot day!
