Uralla Shire: Lifestyle

Uralla’s pride in its heritage and love of arts and antiques is apparent in the abundance of wonderful antique and speciality stores, galleries and museums spread throughout the town. A wander through the gorgeous shops will capture anyone’s interest and make sure to sample the fine local produce that can be found in the many great cafes, pubs and restaurants.

Uralla is surrounded by National Parks and historical sites that are perfect for bushwalking, trail rides, camping or even some fossicking. Sportspeople are also well catered for in Uralla with a swimming pool, playing fields, a golf course, bowling greens and tennis courts available for all to use. There is certainly an activity for everyone in Uralla.

Less than two hours drive from Uralla and Armidale, along sealed roads is the spectacular gorge country of the New England National Park. Included in the World Heritage List it offers views of magnificiant unspoilt wilderness as far as the eye can see. The Oxley Wild Rivers National Park with its breathtaking panoramas, is home to rare and endangered plant species as well as an extensive variety of other plant, bird and animal life. Both cater for easy walks to spectacular lookouts as well as providing more testing treks. At Dangars Lagoon, a wetland reserve close to Uralla, water birds can be viewed from a hide.
