ABOUT THIS REGION This vast region of NSW has plenty of exciting holiday choices for all ages. Some of Australia's oldest country towns are here, offering a taste of pioneering history that can include a trip on a paddle steamer, uncovering 19th century colonial architecture and tasting wines made from some of the first grapes ever planted in Australia. There are many fine regional art galleries such as the Western Plains Cultural Centre at Dubbo and The Wagga Wagga Art Gallery in Wagga Wagga. Regional museums are well worth a visit to learn about cultural or natural heritage such as Griffith's Italian Museum, Shear Outback in Hay or the Bathurst Regional Art Gallery. The region is home to the internationally renowned Taronga Western Plains Zoo in Dubbo, a 300-hectare open range sanctuary that houses over 700 animals, including many rare and endangered species. Natural attractions such as the Warrumbungle National Park offer world-class walks; the highest waterfall in Australia is the Wollomombi Falls in Oxley Wild Rivers National Park. The New England North West region which includes Armidale, Tamworth, Glen Innes & Inverell is a great place to explore on a touring holiday. You'll find delicious food and wine, a wide range of accommodation styles and welcoming hospitality along local drives and trails.
