The town of Walcha offers new residents the opportunity to enjoy a friendly, laid back lifestyle whilst still providing access to a broad range of services including health, education, shopping and social support. What Walcha doesn’t provide can be found in the nearby centres of Tamworth and Armidale.

Walcha boasts a terrific climate with four distinct seasons, great employment and business opportunities and a warm and welcoming community. The natural beauty of the Shire is absolutely breathtaking and provides a stunning backdrop for day to day activities and a fantastic environment to raise a family in.

Walcha lends itself to outdoor pursuits with fishing, bushwalking and camping being popular activities for visitors and locals alike. Sport is also a popular pastime with clubs in town to suit absolutely any interest from horse riding to tennis, rugby and even darts.
Food and wine are emerging industries in Walcha and the many cafes and fabulous pub menus attest to the freshness of the local produce. Sitting outside one of Walcha’s fabulous eateries is certainly a fantastic way to spend a sunny afternoon. There is also the opportunity to hop in the car and take a food and wine tour of the area, with artisan cheese makers, berry farms and gorgeous bakeries all very excited to show off their wares.
