Local Attractions

The Walcha and New England district has a wide range of things to do; you can take a short drive and explore the magnificent National Parks with spectacular waterfalls and gorges.There are interesting walks in the parks up to a three day one down the gorge if you are keen.

In Walcha admire the open air Gallery around the town,also the newer Art gallery.
Walcha has an abundance of sporting facilities such as a beautiful 18 hole Golf course, tennis courts, bowling greens, squash courts, swimming pool and good trout fishing areas.Walcha has a great little shopping centre or and hour away will get you to Tamworth or Armidale. Dining out can be done at the local Clubs, Pubs and Motel and a favorite is the Walcha Road Hotel which is only just down the road from Venter Fair.
