A Bit More From Tamworth

We're leaving tomorrow morning, but we had a great day looking around Tamworth today. After a rainy night, we awoke to a glorious sunny day. Graham and Diana took us to all the popular places starting with our own Motel.

I mentioned before, that Tamworth is the Australian Country Music capitol of Australia which was evident in the pool here at the Sundance Park Motel's guitar shaped swimming pool.

Then they took us to the relatively new equestrian centre for a look around.

From here, the group travelled to the famous Golden Guitar, the music centre here in town.

Then we drove up to the local lookout to enjoy the view over the town.

Then a walk through the Botanic Garden.

We finished up with a stroll through the local shopping centres before returning back to the motel.

Tonight, we had our farewell dinner with plans to meet again this time next year, in Brisbane. It was a fabulous reunion with a good bunch of friends. Well done, Graham and Diane for organising it, You excelled yourselves.

So, tomorrow morning, we heading south

  1. The town looks nice, but I can't get past the awful music that happens there every year.

  2. Yep, we Aussies love 'BIG' things. Big golden guitar here; big pineapple, orange, crayfish, wine cask, hay bales, rocking horse, banana, koala, shell.....
