GUYRA - TOP OF THE RANGE
The Guyra Shire, located on the top of the New England Range midway between Sydney and Brisbane,
has much to offer both visitors and residents.
The New England is renowned for its natural beauty and Guyra provides visitors with an ideal base
from which to explore the many National Parks and nature reserves. The Shire includes spectacular
scenic mountain ranges, water falls, national parks and streams, together with the Mother of Ducks and
Little Llangothlin lagoons. Opportunities abound for those who want to enjoy trout fishing, bushwalking,
bird watching, self drive tours and fossicking for sapphires.
Tourists can enjoy visiting the smaller villages within the Shire. The historic old tin mining town of
Tingha, Ben Lomond, Black Mountain and Ebor all offer wonderful scenery and points of interest.
For residents the Shire offers a great lifestyle. Guyra and the surrounding district boasts village style shopping, a wonderful climate that offers four quite distinct seasons, fantastic real estate opportunities, excellent health care facilities, a wide variety of sport and recreation, plus first class primary and secondary education. With the University of New England located nearby in Armidale, students can continue their education close to home.
Being close to Armidale means residents can enjoy living in a small, safe community while at the same time accessing the advantages of large national retail chains, private school education, entertainment and cultural facilities.
Guyra Shire has a highly productive agricultural industry, due to its average rainfall of 900mm, seasonal reliability, fertile soils and temperate climate.
Guyra Shire Council welcomes you to our Shire, and hope that you enjoy your stay.
