Adventure in Walcha
Walcha is the gateway to some of the best adventure experiences in Australia. Expect gorges, rainforests, waterfalls and wilderness. Enjoy helicopter flights, 4WD tours and fishing, as well as guided bushwalks in some of Australia's most rugged terrain.
This picturesque Country NSW town on the beautiful New England Tablelands is the southern gateway to Oxley Wild Rivers National Park. Walcha itself is known for its historic buildings, cosy restaurants, cafes and quality accommodation.
Further afield from Walcha, there's plenty to see and do including bushwalking, camping and picnicking in beautiful national parks. Highlights in this rugged gorge country include Apsley Waterfalls, Tia Waterfall, Budds Mare Lookout and Riverside. Werrikimbe and Willi Willi national parks offer excellent camping and bushwalking among ancient Antarctic Beech trees.
This region produces some of the State's most prized cool-climate wines, so if food and wine aren't already on your agenda, add them to your to-do list! Along with excellent wineries such as Whyworry Wines and Merilba Estate, there are also some fantastic restaurants waiting to impress you with local produce.
