Gunnedah is nestled amidst the fertile black soil plains of the Upper Namoi Valley and is known as the ‘Koala Capital of the World’. The district is blessed with one of the largest and healthiest koala populations West of the Great Divide, and has an abundance of koalas living right in the township.
Located just 440km by Road from Sydney, Gunnedah offers its residents a perfect blend of a relaxed quality lifestyle within a resilient economic area. Gunnedah’s agricultural foundation is reinforced each August when 100,000 visitors flock to the town for Ag-Quip, the largest agricultural field days in the Southern Hemisphere.
The variety of crops and pastures responding to the ever-changing seasons provide an infinite array of living colours. This beauty of “a land of sweeping plains” inspired Gunnedah’s favourite visitor, Dorothea Mackellar in much of her poetry and prose.
