This was just a fabulous step back in time. My Aunty is actually featured in the Museum and it was so nice seeing her costumes and reading about things I wasn't around for!

This was an excellent display and very interesting to Country Music Fans (my husband) and those who are just interested in music and the history of Country Music in Australia (me). Thoroughly enjoyed this museum.

This is in the back of the Visitor Information Centre building which is shaped like a guitar. The ladies in the VIC were very helpful and knowledgeable on the area. The Museum follows the history of country music in Australia and has a lot of old pieces. Well worth the small fee to get in.

very good but some of the video displays have been reduced compared to last time we visited. Good value for money with reduced rates for seniors

Found this very interesting and full of great information from the birth of country music in Australia to the present day. Everything is very well laid out and you can easily spend a few hours engrossed in all things country.

Attached to a small information center, at which I found the staff rather unhelpful and unknowledgeable, is the Walk A Country Mile Museum. There is plenty of car parking in the adjacent fast food restaurant car park, or out the back of the complex for longer vehicles and caravans. The museum itself focuses on Australian country music and some of... More

Attached to the tourist information centre, this museum is interesting and interactive. It is stocked with memorabilia that will interest country music and non country music fans alike.

I am not really a country music fan, but wanted to learn a bit more about it while I was in Tamworth, so headed here. The display is part of the Tamworth Tourist Info Centre. There is an admission charge of $5 ($4.50 concession) although when I visited several of the DVD displays were not working and they waived the... More
