Businesses are investing in the Tamworth region because of its growing population, its central location between Sydney and Brisbane, and its strong ‘can do’ attitude, as shown by the development of our internationally recognised Tamworth Country Music Festival into one of the world’s top ten music festivals. In addition, significant infrastructure such as the Tamworth Regional Entertainment Centre and the $29 million Equine Centre give the region a significant competitive advantage.

All this goes to show the Tamworth region is truly ‘Making it Happen’.
