Nymboida, NSW

Nymboida is a small village situated about 40 km south west from Grafton, along the road to Armidale. It enjoys stunning mountain bush, magnificent waterways and an abundance of wildlife, including many endangered species.

The village is sited near the Nymboida River and Goolang Creek and has a charming heritage style hotel/motel, canoe centre & camp grounds, outdoor activity centre, school, community hall, church, police station, and sports ground, all surrounded by a small amount of local houses and a large amount of beautiful country side.

The Nymboida area was opened up by the charting of craigs line as an access link between armidale and the clarence district. The link was described as one of the worst pieces of country that man had negotiated with bullock drawn vehicles.This spectacular terrain is far more comfortable for today’s motorist. At Nymboida, a hydro-electricpower station pumps water from the nymboida river and then releases into goolang creek, creating one of Australia’s most exciting white-water canoe courses. Spectators can sit just inches from the action and enjoy the thrills and spills of state, national and world title contests. Visitors may camp in the ground adjacent to goolang creek.
The Nymboida coaching station was built on the armidale mail run one hundred years ago. it overlooks the Nymboida river and is now the jump-off point for many rafting tours.

Just south of the Nymboida area around Billy’s Creek and Hernani are located two farmstays for those wanting to retreat to the picture-perfect and peaceful rural surrounds
