Murrurundi is one hour south of Tamworth and half an hour north of Scone and boasts natural beauty, rich farming land and plenty of character. This is the last stop before heading over the ranges to Willow Tree in the north and bidding farewell to the Upper Hunter.
Are you interested in art, antiques and cafes or just finding some local eclectic pieces for your home? Then the artisan village of Murrurundi may be just what you are looking for.
There are many art galleries and events by the Murrurundi Arts Council and the town’s shops, cafes and pubs open their doors every weekend for you.
Anytime of the year explore the unique rock formation of the Eye of the Needle just past the town’s golf course. It is a fascinating walk from Paradise Park to a lookout with captivating views of Murrurundi.
Follow the town walk to view many of the Heritage listed buildings such as Dooley’s Store and the White Hart Hotel. Copies of the Heritage Walk map can be picked up from the Visitor Information Centre. A favourite photo spot is the old suspension, ‘swinging’ bridge, built before WW1 and once used to transport the Chief Magistrate by buggy to the court house when the Pages River flooded.
