Take a look around 

The New England High Country town of Walcha straddles two of the most picturesque roads in the region; the Oxley Highway and Thunderbolts Way.

Located on the northern tablelands of NSW, Walcha boasts some of Australia’s most spectacular countryside. Undulations of highly productive pastured lands meet a labyrinth of gorges, where sheer cliffs and waterfalls delight the senses. To experience the gorge country is humbling, a powerful but gentle reminder of how small we are in comparison to our land. An appreciation can but be observed; for the hardships explorers and early settlers must have faced in the early years and the knowledge, intuition and initiative held by the first Australians to traverse these lands and survive can’t escape admiration.
The naturally artistic formation of the landscape is complimented by the artistic and culturally rich township of Walcha. Abundant with public art, the Open Air Gallery now boasts close to fifty sculptures, making Walcha the most art saturated town in Australia, with a piece of public art for every 60 of its citizens. Contributing artists are local, national, and international, with many of our local artists being internationally renowned.
The shopping precinct offers; art galleries, handmade stores and studios, boutique, gift and antique shops; and fabulous cafés. The Pioneer Cottage Museum exhibits a great display of artefacts of by-gone eras or take a self guided tour of our historic buildings.
Accommodation options are plentiful and the pubs, bistros and restaurants all offer great meals.
