“Country Music Aficionado Heaven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

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 the local Tamworth Country Music Festival awards history. There is a range of memorabilia on display, as well as several videos playing throughout the galleries. It is however relatively small, and only half and hour to an hour needs to be set aside to comfortably view all that is on offer. At the time of writing, the admission cost for an adult was $5.00.

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.

“Good for the non country music fans...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012

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 charges.

The display gives a nice overview of country music in Australia from 1780s -2010 by series of poster boards, videos and memorabilia. There is a selection of early records including a rare aluminium record. There are also snippets of recording artists that you can listen to.

It's not a huge display, but is reasonably well set out and takes about an hour to wander through.

Level access.
Open 9am - 5pm 7 days a week Closed Christmas Day
