About Gunnedah - not just the Koala Capital of the world

Gunnedah is a friendly and vibrant town situated 440 km by road north west of Sydney. It has a population of around 12,500 people in the shire which covers an area of over 5,000 square kilometres.

Gunnedah is fast becoming the new mining capital of Australia. We believe it is vital to develop a strong community of people focussed upon sustainable living with a view to preserving Gunnedah's beautiful natural environment.

The town is situated at the junction of the Oxley and Kamilaroi Highways, and is uniquely positioned approximately one hour's drive from Tamworth, Narrabri, Quirindi, Coonabarabran and Manilla and is even closer to the villages of Curlewis, Carroll, Bogabbri and Mullaley.
