The Pub here commenced operation when the gold rush started in Adelong about 1860 and was called "The Adelong Crossing Hotel". Adelong Crossing Place Post Office opened on 1 August 1864, was renamed Tumblong in 1913 and closed in 1973.
Tumblong consists of a wrecking yard, a few private residences on the road to Adelong and a pub, one of only a few remaining directly on a part of a road called the Hume Highway, though another such pub is situated in Coolac.
The Tumblong area is also home to a reasonably large vineyard area which is a part of the Southcorp Wines group which includes well known Australian wine names such as Penfolds and Lindemans. The vineyard known as Tumblong Vineyard is on the Tumblong to Mundarlo road.
