Nestled amidst the fertile black soil plains of the Upper Namoi Valley, the township of Gunnedah is a bustling and progressive country town with a population of 9,500.

Gunnedah is the Koala Capital of the World.

The district is blessed with one of the largest and healthiest Koala populations West of the Great Divide. Koalas often are seen sauntering from tree to tree or even crossing the main street! A visit to the Waterways Wildlife Park allows visitors an even closer encounter with koalas and other native fauna.

Gunnedah’s agricultural foundation is reinforced each August when 100,000 visitors flock to the town for Ag-Quip, the largest agricultural field days in the Southern Hemisphere, while the district’s rich rural heritage is preserved in the vast collection of equipment at The Rural Museum.

The variety of crops and pastures responding to the ever-changing seasons provide an infinite array of living colours. This beauty of “a land of sweeping plains” inspired Gunnedah’s favourite visitor, Dorothea Mackellar in much of her poetry and prose.

Visitors to Gunnedah are always pleasantly surprised with the diversity of attractions and events including Lake Keepit State Park, bushwalking, sightseeing and tours.

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
