TamworthFamous for its annual world-class country music festival, Tamworth is a hub for country music lovers, as well as rodeo fans and people wanting to explore the flavours of its emerging food and wine scene.
Each year, the bustling town hosts the ten-day Tamworth Country Music Festival, which is both the largest music festival in the southern hemisphere and one of the top ten festivals in the world. Despite these close ties with country music (a relationship solidified by the construction of the famous 12 metres high Golden Guitar), there's a lot more than music to discover in this culturally rich and naturally beautiful country city. The breathtaking Tamworth region is dotted with pristine waterways and beautiful national parks, offering ample opportunities for bushwalking, rock climbing, paragliding and off-road adventures, fishing, and bird watching. Accessible by car, plane or train, and at only five hours from Sydney and seven hours from Brisbane, there's nothing to do but breathe in that fresh country air.
