Why go there

Some of Australia’s most historic country towns dot this region. These quintessentially Australian settlements, founded by gold miners, graziers and farmers and chosen by artists for their special light, are loved by visitors today for their old-world general stores and friendly country pubs.

Elsewhere in the region, prepare for the unexpected: a giant telescope; memorials to Australia’s wartime history; fields of sunflowers adjoining cotton and wheat fields; captivating regional art galleries and a great outdoor zoo.
