Nundle NSW - Nundle NSW
The historic gold town of Nundle is situated 400km north of Sydney and east of the New England Highway. Nundle is not far from Tamworth, the Country Music Capital of Australia. The town is very small and sits beneath the commanding hills of the Great Dividing Range. The population of 225 is small and this may explain why the locals are so friendly and inviting. You don't pass through Nundle on the way to somewhere else so you need to deliberately decide to visit the village and it is well worth the effort. Just leave the New England Highway at Wallabadah and follow the signs to Nundle. Any all bitumen road will take you to the village.
The the mid 1800's many gemstone fossickers came to Nundle in search of wealth. Gold was also a major attraction and the town swelled to more than double the size it is today. Visitors continue to fossick today with the Hanging Rock area being a major area of interest. Sheep, wheat and cattle are the main agricultural pursuits today.
One of the main tourist attractions is the Nundle Woollen Mill
which has a wide variety of handicrafts on sale and display. This is an excellent tourist attraction situated beside the town's community swimming pool. If you are travelling with a caravan then the Nundle Caravan Park
is a great place to stay and relax.
