There are many reasons for relocating to the Tamworth region.
The Tamworth region is one of the most rapidly growing inland areas of NSW. The region has a population of over 57,000, with over 40,000 in Tamworth city and another 10,000 people living within 20km of the city centre. The towns of Manilla, Barraba, Nundle and Kootingal along with another 17 hamlets and villages and rural areas make up the region.
The region offers attractive employment and business opportunities as well as affordable housing. There is a range of educational and training options for families,career and personal development. A huge range of facilities, including the iconic Australian Equine and Livestock Events Centre, cater for sports from AFL through paragliding to water polo. As well as agribusiness, there is a vibrant retail sector. The thriving arts and cultural community are well supported by theatres such as the new Capitol Theatre, museums and the Tamworth Regional Conservatorium of Music, which is the second largest regional conservatorium in NSW. In addition to the local hospitals servicing the region, Tamworth has a Base Hospital with a 24 hour emergency department, specialist units and established links to tertiary hospitals in Newcastle and Sydney.
There are many resources available to new and prospective residents. Council joined forces with Tamworth Regional Development Corporation and Tourism Tamworth to provide a snapshot of the region in the New Residents' brochure.
