Set on the northern banks of the Deepwater River is the charming village of Deepwater. Beautiful old buildings dot the streets, including the art deco Eclipse Theatre and the historic railway station - opened in 1886 - while natural beauty seems to flow from the village’s pores. Opportunities for bushwalking, fossicking and fishing are in no short supply here, yet Deepwater also lends itself to those just wanting to slow down and revive their senses.
Events abound in Deepwater. The annual Deepwater Picnic Race meeting is held each January, and offers a relaxed atmosphere in which to enjoy the beautiful summer weather. The Deepwater Scarecrow and Wool Festival is a free event held in mid-spring, which is held to celebrate the end of Deepwater’s frosty winter months.
Accommodation and counter meals are available at the towns two hotels – the Deepwater Inn and the Commercial Hotel Motel – with the Oakhurst Cottage Farmstay offering a charming accommodation alternative. Experience this pocket of NSW’s Celtic Country for yourself and breathe in the fresh country air.
