Tamworth - Regional New South Wales
Tamworth is renowned as the Country Music Capital of Australia – the world’s second biggest country music festival is held in Tamworth. The city also claims to be the National Equine Capital of Australia.
Already established as the regional hub for the Greater Northern region of NSW, Tamworth is attracting attention and investment from all levels of government which could prompt significant growth in the next 10 years.
Construction of a major freight hub has begun and a pilot training academy has been approved.
A key part of Tamworth’s appeal is the affordability of housing in this regional city, compared to capital city prices.
Tamworth has plenty of room and established facilities to accommodate the spillover from capital cities – a move currently being encouraged by federal and state politicians.
The economy is solid, underpinned by agriculture, mining, tourism, aviation, education and healthcare, while the city is attracting buyer demand from people priced out of Sydney.
