Travel Tips for Tamworth

Architecture

by iandsmith

There are a few buildings around the town worthy of a second glance, this ex-Catholic one is now the Tamworth Conservatory of Music.
It's located on the northern side of town on the Armidale Road.

Just looked good

by iandsmith

Just getting out of my car to go and buy a pie and it was such a crystal clear day with bold blue sky I thought the architecture across the road from the railway station was worth a photo.
I hope you see something in it too!

Country Music Week

by iandsmith

Australia has a holiday called Australia Day. Unlike most other countries in the world we don't really celebrate our heritage a lot but, in typical Aussie style, we look upon it as another opportunity to have a day off. Governments recognize this and somehow the holiday seems to end up making it a long weekend somehow. Are we complaining? No, we're Australian, we can't be bothered!
What it does do is allow us to have a festival or two on that weekend and Tamworth has excelled with the number one attraction Australia-wide. The town of over 30,000 more than doubles in size. This picture will explain part of the attraction.

The art in the park

by iandsmith

If you like this work then you're bound to enjoy your walk around the park. Silvio Apponyi was commissioned to do 67 works in 1988 and his sculptures and reliefs are a feature as you meander through this pleasant adjunct to the CBD centred around Peel Street and the namesake Peel River the town was founded around. Though born in Germany, Silvio Apponyi emigrated to Australia when he was just 18 months old. He hasn't stopped travelling since.
He got his arts degree in South Australia and got a scholarship to return to Germany, Munich specifically. Whilst in Europe he roamed various countries, taking particular interest in public sculpture and fountains.
On his return to Australia he won a number of awards and added to his resume by learning woodblock printing in Japan.
From 1994-1996 he was resident artist at Mulgara Gallery at Ayers Rock Resort.
His work has been shown in such diverse places as London, Japan and Kuala Lumpur and he has worked with many mediums other than the granite you see here. Wood, bronze and marble to name but a few.
In additon to sculpting people he has an obvious passion for Australian wildlife with pieces ranging from kookaburras and lizards to sea lions and whale's tails and 26 of his works on that theme can be seen at Woodville Gardens in South Australia.
Undoubtedly his largest and most seen work though is the giant merino at Goulburn.

Progressive sunset

by iandsmith

Just outside of town there's a house, a decrepit house. For years I've tried to imagine a good shot of that house. Checked it out every time I go past, can't quite vizualize the shot. Then, a sunset looked like it would happen one night and I drove off down there, spent 15 minutes trying to work out how I could include the house but it wasn't going to work out, so I moved.
Just down the road was a dead tree. How I love dead trees in the foreground of a sunset. Thus here you see the progression of that sunset till it finally turned red in pic 5.
Hope you enjoy.
