The North Gundagai Rest Area is better known as the place "where the dog sits on the tucker box five miles from Gundagia". This is a line from a song from the old "Dad and Dave" radio serial from 1937 to 1953. The area hosts a service station with cafe and a cafe and souvenir shop at the location of the statue of a dog on a tucker box that gives the location its name. There are toilets and picnic facilities as well.
