Activities

Indigenous Culture:

Walk through time as you explore this small historic mining village that has been populated by Indigenous people from 5000 years ago. The word Nundul was derived from ‘nuntul’ meaning 'mouth' in the dialect of local Aboriginal inhabitants, referring to the mouth of the Nundle River as it flows into the Peel.

Over time the name evolved into Nundle. Prior to the arrival of Europeans, the area around Nundle was occupied by the Kamilario Aboriginal people.

Nundle Fossicking:

The Tamworth region is historically renowned for its gold, gems and mineral discoveries.

Visitors can try their hand fossicking at various sites around Nundle such as:

- Swamp Creek Camping Reserve

- Hanging Rock Lookout and Crown Reserve

- Forest Way Fossicking Site

Located just 60 kilometres from Tamworth's Central Business District, Nundle is a quaint and thriving little village. This pretty town is surrounded by undulating hills and streets lined with trees.

Did you know…?

The gold rush to Nundle and Hanging Rock began more than 150 years ago. Gold can still be found in the area and is usually found in the sand and gravel at the river’s edge. Precious gems including sapphires, zircon, crystal and prase can also be found in the area.

Wool Mill and Shops:

Nundle Woollen Mill is one of the last spinning mills still operating in Australia. The Nundle Mill team use traditional spinning machinery, several pieces nearly 100 years old, to transform raw wool into famous Nundle knitting yarn in 8 ply, 12 ply and 20 ply.

In tours, visitors marvel at these antique machines working their magic to turn bales of Australian merino wool into yarns in the vibrant colours for which they have become famous for.
