Dog on the Tuckerbox

Dog on the Tuckerbox, Tourism New South Wales

Originally mentioned in the poem Bill the Bullocky by Bowyang Yorke, this monument to pioneer teamsters and their dogs, situated on the highway 8 kilometres north of Gundagai, is recognised throughout the nation as an Australian icon. The faithful bronze dog was unveiled in 1932 by former prime minister Joseph Lyons and celebrated in the song ‘Where the Dog Sits on the Tuckerbox’ by Jack O’Hagan (who also penned the famous ‘Along the Road to Gundagai’).
