Nature getaways around Tamworth

Visit Tamworth's Marsupial Park to see kangaroos, wallabies, possums, emus and echidnas, or enjoy a picnic in the pretty Botanic Gardens.

Check out the panoramic views of the Tamworth slopes and plains from the Oxley Lookout where you can go for a bushwalk along one of the many walking trails.

Quirindi, south of Tamworth, is known for its fields of sunflowers that bloom from December to March. Quipolly Dam, 18 km north-east, is a flora and fauna sanctuary well worth visiting to see plentiful waterbirds.

Explore on foot Warrabah National Park or go bushwalking through remnant rainforest in Mount Kaputar National Park.
