Falling Leaf Festival

A circus performer walks on a tightrope at low level, in front of a crowd. Autumn in the town of Tumut offers one of the most spectacular displays of seasonal colours to be found anywhere in New South Wales.

In 1954 the local headmaster, Alf Wood, introduced the idea of a festival to celebrate the arrival of autumn and the falling leaves, which characterised the town’s many parks and gardens. Alf enlisted the support of the Rotary Club of Tumut, and The Tumut Falling Leaf Festival was born.

2024 is the 70th Anniversary!

Live Music, Local Arts and Craft and Produce Markets, Workshops, Amazing Street Parade, Live Theatre and Comedy and more! It's the best way to see all that this beautiful town has to offer in one weekend.
