Located just 40 minutes from Tamworth’s CBD is the quaint and thriving little centre of Nundle. This pretty village is surrounded by undulating green hills and beautiful parklands and bordered by the picturesque Peel River. Known for its old-world shops filled with antiques, homewares, bakeware and craft, the village is the perfect place for a country escape.
The Nundle Woollen Millis a must-see attraction when you visit Nundle. Visitors can see the antique machinery at work, and stock up on handmade knits and Australian designer wool fashion, including the famous Nundle socks. Also well worth a look is the Mouth Misery Gold Mine Café and Museum, Odgers and McClelland Exchange Stores and the Nundle Country Trader.
A short drive from Nundle is picturesque Hanging Rock. A day trip out here can include a visit to the 184 hectare Arc-en-ciel Trout Farm and the Hanging Rock Lookout, which offers arguably the most extraordinary views in the north west of NSW. On a cold day, you might be lucky enough to see Hanging Rock with a dusting of snow, as with an elevation of 1100m, the area does see snow on the colder winter days.
There are plenty of accommodation options in town, ranging from luxury B&B, hotel, motel, self-contained cabins and cottages and bunk houses to camping at the tourist park or recreation reserves. Cafes and eateries are also in abundance, so be sure to include a trip to Nundle in any tour through the Tamworth region.
