Things to do

The Gwydir Shire region is a popular tourist destination for travellers from all walks of life, particularly grey nomads and young families who are seeking a unique and authentic experience far from the crowds and the monotony of the coast.
Spend your days fossicking, exploring, white water rafting, horse riding or simply lazing on a riverbank with or without a fishing line. How much you choose to do is up to you – enjoy an action-packed adventure or just go with the flow.
