Sport in Guyra
Fishing in one of Guyra's numerous and beautiful streams is a great way to relax and get back to nature. You might land a big trout, too! If you're looking for more active pursuits, you're within easy reach of a number of scenic national parks, where rock climbing, kayaking horseriding and bushwalking are just some of your options.
Guyra is a peaceful, elevated village in the Armidale area on the New England Tablelands, where snow is not unusual in winter. In the 19th century, dairy farming was a major economic activity here, but these days, other produce, such as potatoes and tomatoes, are staple crops. The Guyra Lamb and Potato Festival takes place every year in January to celebrate local produce.
Grab your binoculars and go birdwatching at Mother of Ducks Lagoon, a wetlands reserve that attracts nature and bird lovers from all over the world. Go bushwalking and enjoy the serenity of Wollomombi Falls, Guy Fawkes River National Park, Ebor Falls and Cathedral Rock National Park.
A small selection of accommodation is available in town, or base yourself further afield in the Armidale area, where you'll find an abundance of hotels, motels, B&Bs and caravan parks. This area of Country NSW is very popular with those who love adventure, with Oxley Wild Rivers National Park in the vicinity. If food and wine is your prime field of interest, you'll find plenty to satisfy your cravings.
