Where are we?

Located on the highest tableland of the Great Dividing Range, at around 1,000 metres above sea level, our distinct four seasons offer spectacular year-round displays across the countryside. With such a close geographical proximity to the coast, New England High Country offers visitors a truly evocative and unique experience with a contrasting landscape of dramatic gorges, stunning waterfalls and awe-inspiring views to the east and rolling granite landscapes and open plains to the west. Our regional city and towns share the amazing natural experiences and offer their individual charms and stories brimming with unique characters.
