The heritage listed Cuppacumbalong House and Garden was the homestead for a very large sheep and cattle enterprise. It has since been a popular recreation and arts destination in this region, until it closed in 2007 following the temporary closing of the Tharwa Bridge. The house and gardens are being renovated in keeping with their early 20 Century styles. The gardens retain their historic appeal. Terraced garden and shrub beds surround the house, framed by many large trees.
The grounds face onto the Murrumbidgee River and mown paths lead along the river to a small historic cemetery.

The new owners provide accommodation, events venue and teaching in crafts, such as knifemaking, leatherwork and blacksmithing. The open gardens weekend will feature some of these crafts, including knife forging and making.

Garden notes are available.
