Guyra is also known as ‘the top of the range’ situated at the divide of the Great Dividing Range at a height of 1320. It is interesting to note that rain falling east of the town railway line finds it way to the Pacific Ocean,
and rain falling west of the railway line ends up in the Murray-Darling basin.
Guyra was developed at part of the extension of the railway in 1880, although pastoralists had been in the area since 1830.
Home in the country
If you’re looking for a value-for-money country holiday that will keep the whole family occupied, a farmstay is the answer. And there are a few things about life on the farm that might surprise you. You can milk a cow and swim in the creek if you want to, but there are also farmstays with tennis courts, trout streams, billiard tables and spa pools. The options available at Australia’s farms are practically endless.
For a classic farm holiday with kangaroos in the paddocks, heaps of horse riding and hills that ring with the sound of kookaburras, the north-east region of New South Wales is just perfect. Set among the hard, craggy country of the New England Ranges, the farmstays of the region have such an abundance of wilderness and wildlife that they seem more like national parks than working farms. The list of on-farm activities includes swimming, trout fishing, gold-panning, four-wheel drive tours, wildlife watching and bushwalking, and for anyone who enjoys trail riding in particular, the farmstays of the New England region offer exhilarating terrain and mounts for riders of all abilities.
Along the coast, the subtropical rainforests of the coastal national parks add another dimension to the area – and a whole new range of activities, both on the farm and in the surroundings. Whichever setting you choose – coast or high ranges – you can be sure that the holiday will be a hit with children. And of course, wherever you go throughout the region, you’re guaranteed a big-hearted country welcome.
