Kurri Kurri, NSW

For many decades, Kurri Kurri was the heart of the coal Fields. The work of miners is notoriously insecure and for a long time the town reflected the transient nature of this occupation.

Kurri Kurri

The town has a revitalised shopping area and several new sub-divisions have been established, with many fine modern homes, contrasting but complimenting the simple charm of cottages in the earlier sections of the town. With the coming of the giant Alcan Smelter, rapidly expanding clothing industries, as well as other smaller Industries, Mines and Power Stations further afield, the citizens of Kurri Kurri can face the future with confidence.

Kurri Kurri has several historical attractions, including churches, galleries and the Kurri Kurri Cemetery which includes mining monuments that honour those who were killed working in the mines.
