Music in Tamworth
Tamworth's annual Country Music Festival is the largest music festival in the southern hemisphere, attracting crowds of up to 50,000 across days of exciting and diverse performances spread over 120 different venues.
Tamworth is known as the country music capital of Australia. It hosts one of the world's biggest music events, the annual 10-day Tamworth Country Music Festival.
In town, you'll see the Hands of Fame Park, which contains the handprints of more than 300 country music stars, and the mighty 12-metre-high Golden Guitar. Check out the memorabilia at the Big Golden Guitar Tourist Centre.
Tamworth is also a year-round sporting and entertainment hub with state-of-the-art venues and a busy events calendar. Don't miss the National Professional Rodeo in January and Hats Off to Country Festival in July.
This part of Country NSW has a strong agricultural focus with sheep, beef, poultry, grains and dairy all farmed here, as well as newer agricultural ventures, such as vineyards, olive groves, nuts, fish farming, honey, hydroponics and delicious berries. The top-quality food and wine means that many local Tamworth restaurants serve up noteworthy goodies. Don't miss the Taste Tamworth Festival in April.
In the wider Tamworth area, you'll find an abundance of great nature experiences, such as national parks, State parks, boating, fishing, water sports, horseriding, birdwatching and fossicking.
