The Dog on the Tuckerbox

Just outside the southern inland New South Wales town of Gundagai sits the Dog on the Tuckerbox, a statue of a dog seated on the tuckerbox (a lunch box).

It is a popular rest area for travelers on the Hume Highway between Melbourne and Sydney with a large service center located just along side.

These photos were taken all the way back in 2007 at the start of my Outback adventure.
