Welcome to Tamworth
It's not quite the Wild West, but Tamworth sits in prime farming country and the town is not so much a regional centre as a holy land – a pilgrimage destination for many music-loving Australians. The religion is country music, the god Slim Dusty, and the holy grail is the world's biggest golden guitar. If you're in the market for bonafide Aussie cowboys and cowgirls, you've come to the right place.
Alternatively, if bootscooting doesn't float your boat and you've no idea who Slim Dusty is (Google him), New England's largest city has a handful of other attractions that might pique your interest.
