Uralla, half way between Sydney and Brisbane on the New England Highway, the ‘Meeting Place’ is steeped in history, from aboriginal rock art to gold fever and the legend of bushranger, Captain Thunderbolt.

There’s plenty of activities and thing to see and do in Uralla including a visit to one of the world’s most advanced satellite tracking stations, walk or ride through majestic gorge country, join in the daily activities at a farmstay, try fishing or birdwatching, then settle in front of a crackling fire with a glass of wine and good friends.

Museums include McCrossin’s Mill, a museum and gallery housing the original paintings of the Death of Thunderbolt.  Take a short drive to the Gostwyck Chapel past the Foundry and you will find the magnificent elm-lined driveway of Gostwyck Station. A further couple of hundered metres past the Chapel is the Deeargee Woolshed, world renowned for it’s octagonal structure built in the early 1870s that can be viewed from the roadside. Gold has lured people to Uralla since the 1850’s, and hawkeyed fossickers can still find gold and small precious stones. For those who prefer fossicking in shops, there are antique and craft shops, galleries, and a renowned antiquarian bookshop all in the main street. ..
