Tamworth is the Country Music Capital of Australasia, the largest and most fascinating tourist region in NSW; one of the biggest gemstone fossiking regions in the State; the centre of perhaps the richest pastoral and agricultural area; the urban entry to some of this continent's most picturesque countryside; the city - partly surrounded by eye stopping mountains and pristine national parks.
Tamworth is strategically located on National Highway 15 - the New England Highway - between Sydney and Brisbane with major links to the Gold Coast, Melbourne, Port Macquarie and Adelaide.
It is the hub of the State's regional airline network, has fast Explorer train services to and from Sydney and there are long distance coach connections in all directions.
Tamworth - the heart of Country - is the tourist stopover well worth a longer stay. For details about the Tamworth Country Festival visit their promotion site.
Cuban heels set the pace in Tamworth during the Country Music Festival. Rhinestone cowgirls saunter down the main street in white leather and tassels. Cowboys politely tip well-worn hats as the pass. And that unmistakeable country beat fills the town as buskers pump out their various sounds. But the locals know Tamworth is so much more than the Country Music Capital of Australia - its the southern gateway to the breathtaking northwest plains and New England.
When visitors flying into Tamworth first see the city's aspect, nestled between rich agricultural plains and dense bushland, they instantly take their cameras out. The crystal clear waterways of close-by Lake Keepit, Chaffey and Split Rock Dam also provide great photo opportunities.

Once in Tamworth, take time to visit the many historical points in the city and head bush to places like Nundle where you can bushwalk, horseride or even fossik for gold.
Enjoy the hospitality of this inland city whilst taking in the many sites.
