Tullamore, NSW

The town of Tullamore is best known for its incredibly popular Tullamore Irish Festival. What does the Tullamore in Australia have in common with the Tullamore in Ireland?… not a lot geographically – but they sure know how to party like the Irish!! The Festival features Irish dancers and entertainers, an Irish hurdle race and a whole program of Irish fun.


This annual festival which has been held since 2004, celebrates Tullamore’s strong Irish links. Many Irish born settlers moved into the area in the 1900’s and today up to 80% of the community still have Irish family connections. Many rural properties around Tullamore are named after Irish towns, such as Kilmarnock, Kinvara, Cadungle, Fermoy and Carlyle.

Sheep and cattle grazing and crop production is the basis of the Tullamore economy. Wheat, barley and oats, oilseeds and winter legumes are grown annually, bringing the town alive during November for harvest. Tullamore offers an insight into rural activity during the annual show in August.

With a population of approximately 700 people, including the township and surrounding farms, there is a strong sense of community and mateship.

While you’re in town, rest a while in Memorial Park on the main street – here you’ll find playground facilities and rest rooms. If you’re staying overnight, choose from bed & breakfast accommodation, a room at the hotel, or a campsite at the Showgrounds. The Tullamore Showground is equipped with toilets, showers and laundry facilities.


Tullamore shopping and facilities include general stores, a newsagency, Rural Tranaction Centre and library.
