This is the land of the Anaiwan
People and "Uralla" means ceremonial meeting place. The Aboriginal
history of this area dates back at least 5000 years. Aborigines are
proud participants of a vibrant Indigenous culture of artists,
professionals and Elders and welcome tourists to discover their past
and enjoy the feeling of their place.
Uralla is right on the
highway and is situated 501km north of Sydney on the New England
Highway and 485km south of Brisbane on the Cunningham/New England
Highway. One may arrive in this extraordinary town and not want to
leave, or not leave the same way they came. With Armidale airport
just 22km to the north and a helicopter at your service, it's not
hard to do it in style.
Uralla is a classic Australian country village with fabulous
fresh and hearty dining, bakeries and cafés, to tempt and satisfy
the hungry traveller. For the enquiring visitor, there is an
antiquarian bookshop, galleries and boutique wool fashion to while
away a relaxing day in town. Step into adventure and take the kids
