Guyra Things to Do

    Since 1986, Guyra has been holding a Lamb & Potato Festival. I have never been to one, but found out about it by stopping to look at the Sheep Monument in the town park. This Monument was erected in recognition of its founders, I should think it would bring a lot of money into the town.
    It is held in January each year. There are stalls, old Machinery, Military vehicles, Cars and entertainment. Each year they say it is growing, so they must be doing something right!

    Country festivals are always great fun!

    Well you can combine both activities in this interesting place with the 'Coffee shop' sign outside the door. Just a small town so you will have no difficulty finding it.
    The owner,an Australian, has been to Slovenia and Croatia so it was of great interest to talk to him. There were lots of things to choose ...hats, sox,soap, rugs,covers,vegetables...and you could sit an enjoy a cup of coffee and cake while you thought about what else to buy.
    David chose a nice bright cover but I had to tell him the colours were definely NOT Macedonian! Quite a different red!

    I guess there were a lot of imports as the prices were reasonable but nevertheless it was an enjoyable stop over.

    Midway between Armidale and Glen Innes..N.S,W

    We stopped one year and really enjoyed the delicious meal. The festival is held over 10 days in January so if you time it just right you can call in on your way ...have lamb and potatoes in Guyra and arrive at Tamworth Country Music refreshed and ready to go.

    There are beautiful shady trees lining the highway where you can make a comfortable stop...some market stalls....and of course the famed lamb and potatoes.

    Favorite thing: Guyra is a small town in quite a high location, as such, it has four distinct seasons.
    Coming from Queensland, where we seem to have only two seasons, I love the coolness here. Autumn is very nice, as the Trees turn beautiful Autumn colours, it is cool, and alongside the road are Hawthorn bushes laden with bright Orange Berries.
    Winter is cold, and it quite often snows here, so be prepared and pack some warm clothes.
