Situated amid the fertile black soil plains of the Namoi River valley, Gunnedah is 440 km north-west of Sydney. The region's beauty is said to have inspired much of Dorothea Mackellar's poetry. The district has booming wheat, cotton and cattle industries, and the town's large wild koala population has led to Gunnedah's self-proclaimed title of the koala capital of the world.
There are several options for exploring Gunnedah's key attractions. Drive the Lions Town Tour, a self-guided, 45-minute tour of the town's points of interest, or step out on the Bindea Walking Track. Learn more about local landmarks and heroes at various heritage locations. The Breaker Morant Drive tells the story of the famous poet, horseman and soldier who worked here during the 1890s. Another fascinating motor route is the Diprotodon Drive to nearby Tamber Springs, where you can learn about the largest marsupial ever to have lived.
