There's historical walks and scenic drives all designed to help you on your journey of discovery, not to mention the Country Music attractions, such as the Big Golden Guitar, Australian Country Music Foundation Musuem , and one of the city's main Country Music attractions - Walk A Country Mile located in the guitar-shaped Information Centre. This musuem allows you to experience the story of Australian Country Music in a unique and interactive environment.

The city's leafy heart has been growing, literally, in recent years. The Peel Street beautification project has seen the creation of paved walkways, welcome seating, palm trees, inviting street cafes and a large range of interesting stores to attract the casual browser or the serious shopper.

Day trips from Tamworth can take you all over this lovely part of the world, from Manilla - Australia's premier site for hang gliding and paragliding to Nundle - where the trout are always tastier!
