The historical township of Nundle is located at the foot of the Great Dividing Range just 60km south-east of Tamworth. Nundle has become a popular destination for tourists searching for the peace of the Peel River or the romantic beauty of the nearby mountains. The area is renowned for its fossicking history where gold, quartz, crystals and many other semi-precious stones can be found. (fossicking equipment is available for hire.) The township of Nundle offers historic wealth and a visit to the Historical Museum will pass many hours. The township also boasts tennis courts with lights, a nine hole golf couse, bowling green and solar heated swimming pool.
Nundle can also be considered to be the jumping off point to many other surrounding attractions and destinations including the villages of Bowling Alley Point, Woolomin and Hanging Rock all of which are famous for their gold mining days. Swimming, sailing and fishing can be found at the nearby Chaffey Dam along with bush walking and forest drives. There are also many popular well stocked trout fishing spots in the numerous streams around the area.
Visitors should take time out to visit the Nundle Woolen Mill for a glimpse into a very specialist field of wool processing. Open 7 days 10 ..4pm. Huge retail area, view the early 1900's machinery from the mezzanine area
The Annual Nundle Chinese Go For Gold Festival is held every Easter and includes two days of family fun and festivities within the village of Nundle. This festival acknowledges Nundle's rich gold mining history, particularly the contributions made by the early Chinese gold miners. It is also a showcase for our local businesses and provides a chance for local and visiting food, produce and craft people to display and sell their wares.
Free entertainment includes live music, performances by a leading Chinese dance and acrobatics troupe, children's variety shows, a sheep shearing competition, an historic shearing display and much, much more! There is an interactive gold-panning activity where you can learn to pan, and even find your very own piece of GENUINE NUNDLE GOLD!
