The Suburb

Gundagai is a town in New South Wales, Australia. Although a small town, Gundagai is a popular topic for writers and has become a representative icon of a typical Australian country town. Located along the Murrumbidgee River and Muniong, Honeysuckle, Kimo, Mooney Mooney, Murrumbidgee and Tumut mountain ranges, Gundagai is 390 kilometres (240 mi) south-west of Sydney. Until 2016, Gundagai was the administrative centre of Gundagai Shire local government area. In the 2016 census the population of Gundagai was 1,925.

The Gundagai area is part of the traditional lands of the Wiradjuri speaking people, while there is a considerable folklore associated with Aboriginal cultural and spiritual beliefs in the area. The floodplains of the Murrumbidgee below the present town of Gundagai were a frequent meeting place of the Wiradjuri.

The first moves to establish ‘Gundagai’ as a township were in 1838 with plans for the new settlement of Gundagae on the Murrumbidgee, about 54 miles beyond Yass … advertised for viewing at the office of the Surveyor-General in Sydney.

What We Did

To furnish the deck at the Criterion Hotel, Nextrend was engaged to supply Air Barstools and Air Chairs for the seating.  These were then match with Astoria Table Bases and Gentas Rustic Blockwood Table Tops.  The owners also utilised Rustic Blockwood Table Tops, mounted to barrels and cut down to use as a long bar table for the back of the deck.
