Australia Day celebrations at Nundle are friendly, welcoming, community-based events where visitors rub shoulders with locals and enjoy the small town country atmosphere. Everyone should experience the poignancy of Australia Day in Country NSW at least once in their lifetime. 

Nundle's Australia Day festivities are a great way to end the Tamworth Country Music Festival and many visitors call into Nundle on their way home.

The old fashioned hand shearing demonstration is always a hit as part of the Nundle Australia Day Program, as well as the Trivia Competition, Bush Band and Children's Activities (Treasure Hunt, Play Doh Modelling, and Best Australia Themed Hat).
