Highlights

Nature around Tamworth

Discover the natural beauty of the Tamworth region. The surrounding country towns, such as Nundle, Manilla, and Barraba are charming, and Lake Keepit, not too far away, is great for camping and fishing for golden perch. The two national parks in the area, Warrabah National Park and Mount Kaputar National Park, are perfect for bushwalking, and spectacular views can be seen from Hanging Rock Lookout.
