A park perched atop the idyllic Peel River, where hidden treasures await.
In the quiet, picturesque town of Nundle, around 70km south of Tamworth, you’ll find the fabulous Fossickers Tourist Park.
It occupies prime position atop the banks of the trickling Peel River with stunning views across the rolling farmland beyond. From luxury family cabins to grassy campsites, there’s accommodation to suit everyone here.
When it comes to caravan parks, this has got to be one of the best. It’s small, immaculately kept and scenically located with big, shady trees, modern cabins and amenities and, above all, extremely friendly management.
With the river flowing past on one side, the park is nestled amongst the hills and forests of Nundle and is an easy walk to the town’s main attractions.
The town’s pristine swimming pool – a country classic – is just across the road, while up the street you’ll find boutique shops, the famous Wool Mill and the legendary Peel Inn with its excellent counter meals. The oval is a stone’s throw away, and this is the location for the famous Nundle Dog Race, where everyday pooches have a blast stretching their four legs.
There’s a range of cabins available to suit most budgets and group configurations. These are positioned with views overlooking the river, the tennis courts or the park’s gardens.
They range from a simple, shared bathroom standard cabin to the luxurious ‘Courtside Villa’ which has two bedrooms with king-sized beds (both of which can be made into singles), an additional bunk bed and two bathrooms, plus a full size kitchen, open plan living area, reverse cycle air-conditioner and an undercover outdoor deck.
For the caravan and camping brigade, the sites are grassy and flat and many are partially shaded by the park’s established trees. The camp kitchen is excellent, with an outdoor undercover dining area complete with barbeques. Amenities are immaculately maintained.
So whether you’re visiting Nundle for shopping, bushwalking, dining, fossicking or simply basking in the peace and quiet, Fossickers Tourist Park is the place to stay.
