Country music is in Tamworth’s DNA but there are so many other things to see and experience in the region. 

Tamworth is the spiritual home of Australian country music and proudly boast the title as Australia’s Country Music Capital. While the Tamworth region celebrates all things country, the city also has a very cosmopolitan side. A vibrant arts scene, incredible dining and a worldly outlook blended with wide, open spaces and natural beauty all combine to make Tamworth a key destination that continually draws visitors back. 

A trip to Tamworth is not complete without a Big Golden Guitar selfie. Located at the Tamworth Visitor Information Centre, visitors can also enjoy the Country Music Wax Museum and the newly opened National Guitar Museum. The museum celebrates the instrument and many of its esteemed players, showcasing signed guitars from legends such as Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers and Keith Urban.

The historic Tamworth Regional Gallery has been displaying works since 1919, making it the second-oldest regional gallery in NSW. Exhibiting both local and international artists, the collections are well worth the devotion of some solid hours. After visiting the Regional Gallery the boutique Weswal Gallery showcases contemporary works from local, regional and national artists. 

Tamworth is Kamilaroi country and there’s no better way to discover the lore and culture of this vast region than on a Len Waters Cultural Tour. Len shares his experiences of Tamworth through an indigenous lens.

Adventures for families are many and varied and suit all age groups. While Tamworth doesn’t have a beach, other adventures leave a lasting impression, including Tamworth’s strong equine culture and experiences for all ages, not found in other cities. Events can be enjoyed at the Australian Equine and Livestock Events Centre or many rodeos around the region.
