Discover our rich history & cultural attractions

New England High Country is decorated with picturesque historic buildings and unique stories from a bygone era. A lot can be learnt from discovering our region’s rich cultural history, including indigenous stories of our past.

Aboriginal people used the landscape as both a natural and cultural resource and there is a strong oral history indicating seasonal movement of Aboriginal people through the rugged gorge system, between the coastal plains and northern tablelands.

From renowned collections of antiquities and Australian art to writers’ workshops, cutting-edge contemporary theatre, and stellar music programs, culture and the arts are ubiquitous in New England High Country. You’ll find there’s always something inspirational going on in the region’s museums and galleries and on any number of stages and screens.

Experience our history and culture through Soundtrails

Soundtrails are self-paced trails with locative audio recordings designed to immerse you in the stories of your surroundings. Using GPS technology, the stories are delivered as you make your way along the trail via an interactive app platform, suitable for most mobile devices. The original compositions, local voices, and world class production truly bring places and their stories to life. Download the Soundtrails app and come up and explore New England High Country:

1. Download the Soundtrails app from the App Store or Google Play. (It’s free)!

2. Open the Soundtrails app and enable location services.

3. Find a Soundtrail you would like to explore and select download.

4. Connect your headphones or turn up your speakers and follow the map trail listening to the stories as you go.

You can also listen to Soundtrail stories via the mobile app without physically being in that location. After step 3, simply press on the green shaded areas displayed on the map and listen to the stories.
