Gilgandra is the town that author Thomas Kenneally based his landmark historical novel The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith upon and it still maintains close ties to its rural heritage, in terms not only of history, but also its local economy.
The town has many exhibitions that display what it was proudly built on and how it continues to flourish today. There are plenty of activities in Gilgandra all year round, including the famous Easter rodeo and goat races, one of country New South Wales’ biggest agricultural shows in May, and October’s Coo-ee Festival.
