Tamworth is a city in northeast New South Wales known for the annual Tamworth Country Music Festival, which draws big-name international acts. Tamworth has about 42,000 people living in and in surroundings areas.
On 9 November 1888, Tamworth became the first location in Australia to have electric street lighting powered by a municipally owned power station, giving the city the title of "First City of Light".
The first streetlights used in Australia were commercially owned in Waratah Tasmania in 1886.
The caravan park we stayed in was rather full due to the BATS, fruit bats, flying foxes that were hanging in the trees by the river which kept people away from the other couple of the caravan parks. The city was really having great problems the time we were there.
A couple of species one species was protected.
Was still cold in Tamworth and winter woollies were certainly on. We rugged up went to the lookout, most places have a lookout.

The grounds on the hill were certainly well maintained.
Some buildings in Tamworth - rather like the Art Deco.
