Quirindi - Things to do

The Who’d-A-Thought-It Lookout

The Lookout is a 360-degree panorama that takes in the town, the Liverpool Plains and the Great Dividing Range. Complete with picnic tables and amenities, the Lookout is the perfect place for a peaceful morning tea or a lazy lunch.

Old Quipolly Dam

A short drive on Borah Creek Road to the North East of Quirindi, Old Quipolly Dam offers avid photographers the chance to take a shot of rare birdlife. With nine designated Bird Routes available in the Shire, even beginners will get the chance to take the ‘shot of a lifetime’.

Rural Heritage Village

For those who are looking to entertain kids, or for those who are history minded, the Heritage Village offers working exhibits of farm machinery, steam engines and vintage engines.

A miniature railway, comprising more than 800 metres of track, operates around a lake area and is in operation on the fourth Sunday of each month.

An annual rally and swap meet where machinery enthusiasts and "swappers" gather together is held the first full weekend in May.

Australian Railway Monument

For railway enthusiasts, a 20km drive will reveal the Australian Railway Monument which houses the history of the first railway town in Australia – Werris  Creek. Giving a taste of Quirindi’s past, within walking distance of Henry’s, is Quirindi Historical Cottage. They have limited opening times, so ask at Reception when you check in. 

The Royal Theatre

For guests interested in The Arts or just wanting a good evening’s entertainment, the Royal Theatre is a must see. One of the three remaining indoor/outdoor cinemas in NSW, this fully refurbished 1930’s style theatre features regular movies and theatre productions, all in air conditioned comfort. Your host at Henry’s will have a current Guide to What’s On – just ask as you check in.

Historical Cottage Museum

Houses collections from many parts of Quirindi & District history and offers local family research facilities.

The Museum is housed in an historical cottage constructed in 1887 from locally made sandstock bricks. Historical displays include farming, medical and dental, communications, family histories, sporting events, military memorabilia, local government, clothing, items used in everyday living - kitchen, laundry, entertainment, photography, and much more.

Historical Cottage Museum opens weekly each Wednesday and Friday from 10.00 am to 2.00 pm, or by arrangement for special inspections by groups, schools & tours

Windy Station

Visit historical WINDY STATION, woolshed built in 1901/2 by the AA Co. with 44 shearing stands.  It was constructed completely out of wood and corrugated iron. Most of its timber was sourced locally from the property.

50,000 acres of rich black soil on the Liverpool Plains. Over one hundred years on, Windy Woolshed still stands in good stead. Now a heritage listed structure.

 

Bob's Shed

An old time General Store stocked with authentic 40s and 50s items, admire the collection of historic pub items in the Railway Hotel and visit Peter Brocks World - an amazing tribute to an Australian icon. Bob’s shed is the envy of any collector there are cars, motorbikes and model cars galore.
