Experience one of the largest stock selling centres in New South Wales. Cattle Sale day is quite a spectacle - try to keep up with the auctioneers chant! Did you know they don't actually talk all that fast - they use a lot of filler words to make it sound fast. This is part functional and part psychological: "it's the perception of an auction that you can sell items in a fast manner", says Brandon Neely, who is Livestock Marketing Association world champion. It certainly makes an auction very exciting!
Gunnedah Saleyards is located on the edge of town, just a kilometre from the town centre on the Kamilaroi Highway towards Narrabri.
It is currently undergoing a significant upgrade, which will enhance the visitor experience.
Cattle Stock sales are held every Tuesday, with all cattle sold live weight.
Saleyards auctions are proceeding as usual, however non-essential personnel are asked not to attend in order to maintain safety standards.
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
Destination NSW acknowledges and respects Aboriginal people as the state’s first people and nations and recognises Aboriginal people as the Traditional Owners and occupants of New South Wales land and water.
