15 Things To Do in Uralla

  1. Boutique Shopping: Spoil yourself at one of Uralla’s unique specialty stores – gifts, home décor, fashion, local art, antiques, antiquarian books and more – there’s something for everyone.
  2. Cafés & Country Pubs: Sit and enjoy a meal at one of Uralla’s fine cafés and delightful old pubs. Take advantage of our mild summers to sit outside and watch the world pass by, or in winter, sidle up to a cosy fire with a glass of local beer, wine or spirits.
  3. Captain Thunderbolt: Visit the final resting place of Australia’s gentleman bushranger, Captain Thunderbolt, or visit Thunderbolt’s Rock, a time-worn cluster of granite boulders that afforded the perfect vantage point for monitoring the approach of unwary mail coaches.
  4. McCrossin’s Mill Museum: Visit McCrossin’s Mill, a lovingly restored three-storey flour mill that now houses a multi-award-winning museum and gallery. Many locals once believed the “Old Mill” to be haunted; now it is hauntingly beautiful.
  5. Heritage Walk: For those with an eye for artistic and architectural style and a reverence for history, a self-guided heritage walk leads to unexpected treasures. Collect a free guide from the Visitor Information Centre.
  6. Farm Tours and Nature Reserves: Meet the goats and sample the goat cheeses, soaps and skin care at Sunhill Goat Dairy, or go bird watching at Barleyfield’s Lagoon, Racecourse Lagoon, Dangar’s Lagoon or Mount Yarrowyck Nature Reserve. Pick up your list from the Uralla Visitor Information Centre and get ‘twitching’!
  7. Fossick: Try your luck at finding gold, sapphires, topaz, garnet and Uralla diamonds at the Wooldridge Fossicking Reserve.
  8. Golf or Bowls: Grab some friends, hire some clubs and play your way around Uralla’s 18-hole course, or join a game at the Uralla Bowlo, where visitors are always welcome.
  9. Uralla Soundtrail: The Uralla Soundtrail was Australia’s first and brings alive a heady mix of sounds and stories that span many generations, many people and many lives. Download the app onto your smartphone or iPad, see yourself on a GPS map, and walk freely in and out of sound fields; a rich weave of memories, voices, myths and archival footage. There are 15 Soundtrails to enjoy, adding another level to your visit.
  10. Waterfalls, Gorges & Ancient Rock Art: Explore the Oxley Wild Rivers, Cathedral Rock and New England National Parks with their abundance of wildlife and breathtaking scenery, or pay a visit to the ancient Aboriginal rock art site at Mount Yarrowyck Nature Reserve. Don’t forget your camera!
  11. Wineries, Breweries, Cidery & Distillery: Try a refreshing ale at the New England Brewing Co. in Uralla’s main street, or head out of town to Eastview Estate (a multi-award-winning distillery and restaurant), or Merilba Estate (winery, cidery & restaurant), for a tasty tipple or two.
  12. Mount Mutton or Creek Walks: Get a sense of history and connection to nature by taking these easy walks around town—and even under the highway! Spy a platypus in the creek if you’re lucky.
  13. Uralla Fairy Map & Public Art: Carmena Urallensis or the Uralla Fairy is a more recent discovery and delights many younger visitors (who are more likely to discover the fairy doorways along the main street). Pick up a map at the Visitor Information Centre. You’ll also be delighted by lovely public art along the Creek Walk and throughout the main street.
  14. Tourist Drives (17, 19, 21 & Aboriginal Culture & Heritage): Enjoy the magnificent scenery and history by taking a tour on quiet country roads around the Uralla Shire—you’ll be surprised!
  15. Natural Wonders from the Air: Enjoy a birds-eye view of spectacular gorges and waterfalls with either Fleet Adventures or Warbirds Adventures—taking 30 min discovery helicopter flights or up to 3-hour gorge flights and picnicking—or take a Warbirds Adventure Flight and experience the ‘G’ forces of some serious aerobatics and open cockpits!
