Nundle

Nundle is an old gold mining town located some 400 km north of Sydney via the New England Highway, situated amidst some spectacular scenery between the towering slopes of the Great Dividing Range and the Peel River which is popular with anglers.

Discovery of gold in 1851 at nearby Swamp Creek led to a flood of prospectors from California, Jamaica, Europe and China to set up camp along the Peel River and up the mountain slopes. By 1865 the population was around 500 with about 50 businesses in operation. Nundle was declared a town in 1885. The ruins of old mine workings and equipment lie scattered about the valley floor and up the mountainsides to this day.

Traces of gold are still found, along with a variety of gemstones, and people continue to pan on the Peel River or fossick in the Hanging Rock area. With Peel River and Chaffey Dam nearby the area is also popular with anglers.
