Immerse yourself in Inverell

Immerse yourself in Inverell

Inverell is ideally located five hours from Brisbane by road and seven hours from Sydney. The NSW TrainLink service operates seven days a week, and Link Airways offers flights to and from Brisbane and Sydney four days a week.

Inverell is found in the beautiful Macintyre Valley in northern New South Wales, a stone’s throw from the Queensland border. Inverell Shire incorporates an area of over 8000 square kilometres.

The New England region is named as such, given the four distinct seasons that you can experience. Depending on the type of weather you enjoy, there is a perfect time for you to come and enjoy all the Shire has to offer.

Inverell is also home to Copeton Dam. The dam is one of the largest inland waterways in New South Wales, with a capacity of 1,367,000 megalitres – three times that of Sydney Harbour at high tide. It is one of only two inland dams in New South Wales, where there is no closed season on Murray cod. The Northern Foreshores area of Copeton hosts the longest recreational boat ramp in the Southern Hemisphere, allowing recreational anglers and boating enthusiasts access to the water no matter the conditions. An ideal camping location, the dam is a must-visit location.

If you’re a sapphire enthusiast, there are still fossicking locations available for you to try your luck. If you want an easier experience, Inverell’s beautiful jewellery stores have a range of incredible sapphires in store.

The magnificent CBD continues to impress visitors and residents alike. The flora is appealing, and the heritage architecture framing the buildings is very impressive. If you enjoy history, or would like to know more about the area, there is an excellent heritage walk that you can immerse yourself in. The walk is self-guided and can be enjoyed with a brochure and/or an audio version on your smart device.

The Inverell Shire is an amazing holiday destination and a perfect place to plant your roots to escape the hustle and bustle, and enjoy a more relaxed lifestyle. They say home is where the heart is. After you have spent some time here, part of your heart will never leave.
