Tamworth Region is one of the most progressive and exciting places in inland Australia. It combines country living with city style, history, sport and culture.
Tamworth is the major business centre of the North West and New England Region of NSW. The City of Tamworth covers 184 sq km and is home to over 50,000 people. It is widely known as the Country Music Capital of Australia, and attracts some 50,000 visitors every January to the festival. Throughout the year Tamworth thrives with cultural activities offering Art Galleries, Museums, a Conservatorium of Music, Libraries and the Capitol Theatre Tamworth. In 2008, Tamworth opened its doors to a $30 million world-class Australian Equine and Livestock Events Centre (AELEC) which now attracts some of Australia’s most action packed equine events.
