Nature in Quirindi

Quirindi is famous for its vast fields of sunflowers that erupt in a blaze of colour from December to March. A short drive away is Quipolly Dam, a world-famous flora and fauna sanctuary where you can see bird species like the diamond firetail and the black-chinned Honeyeater.

About Quirindi

Quirindi is located about 60km southwest of Tamworth, in the heart of the Liverpool Ranges. This region is regarded as some of the richest agricultural land in Country NSW, supporting everything from olive plantations to rolling fields of sunflowers.

Explore Quirindi with a walk down the historic main street; the footpath has been stamped with Liverpool Plains' cattle brandings from the past century. Drop into the Quirindi Rural Heritage Village and Miniature Railway for a primer on the area’s rich history, and on the fourth Sunday of the month, you can take a scenic road trip on the HO gauge model railway.
