The best family friendly activities in Tamworth

Are you looking for a family friendly destination with plenty to do for young and old alike? Look no further than Tamworth! Best known for the annual country music festival, there’s plenty more to Tamworth than cowboy boots and guitars – although there’s plenty of those too! Today we’re sharing some of our favourite family friendly things to do in the town that country music built.
 
  1. Tamworth Regional Playground
We’re talking a skywalk, three giant slides, bike tracks, towers, a flying fox and a waterfall. What could be more fun than that? Pack a picnic, take your togs and prepare to spend a whole day here with the family.

  1. Tamworth Marsupial Park
It’s pretty common knowledge that kids of all ages love spending time with furred and feathered friends, and you’ll have the opportunity to do just that at the Tamworth Marsupial Park. Keep an eye out for resident ‘tour guide’, Willie the duck – he’s most often spotted at the entrance to the park and is known for his love of children! The park was created and is maintained by a dedicated team of vollies, and you can spot kangaroos, echidnas, possums, pythons and more amongst the natural bush habitat.
