The historic town of Nundle is located 60 kilometres east of Tamworth at the start of the Fossickers Way Touring Route. It is surrounded by picturesque countryside of fertile river flat farms and rich grazing lands.
An old gold mining town from the 1850s to 1880s, there are ruins of old mine workings and equipment throughout the valley. Chinese migrants moved to Nundle to work as miners, storekeepers and gardeners and their contribution to the town is celebrated at the annual Nundle Go for Gold Chinese Festival in Easter.
Try your hand at fossicking or visit the Mount Misery Gold Mine museum. Explore the Nundle Woollen Mill and enjoy the kaleidoscope of yarn spun on vintage machinery. Or take a leisurely drive up into the ranges of Hanging Rock for spectacular views from the lookout. Fish at Chaffey Dam or Peel River and pick berries at Koolkuna Berry Farm.
