When you’re travelling along the Newell Highway why not take a short drive east and visit Inverell. This great town is located on the banks of the Macintyre River in a picturesque valley on the western edge of the Northern Tablelands.
The retail sector of Inverell is renowned for its diversity and beautiful heritage architecture.
There is a mix of national chains and charming boutique shops and it is a must to call into one of the local eating establishments to enjoy a cuppa and a bite to eat. You have a choice of cafes, restaurants and pubs. True blue country hospitality awaits you.
Inverell has many wonderful attractions from a walk in the national parks/flora and fauna areas, horse riding, fishing, water sports, all types of outdoor activities and of course fossicking for the beautiful blue Inverell sapphire. There are many displays, exhibitions and demonstrations on show around the shire. From history at the Pioneer Village, vineyards and wineries, an olive industry and lovely arts and crafts, there is something for the whole family to enjoy.
