Holiday Tours showcasing New South Wales
Don’t miss Australia’s largest music festival, the 47th Tamworth Country Music Festival. This year the highlight of our tour is sure to be the Cavalcade as we watch the parade of music stars and groups in their procession along Peel Street. The whole of Tamworth comes alive at festival time, with buskers, open air concerts and air conditioned venues cross town. So plan your trip to mark off your ‘must see’ performers or unearth someone new.
