Inverell Information

Inverell in New South Wales is situated on the Macintyre River and is a fairly large town with a population of about 12,000 residents. Inverell gets its name from Alexander Campbell who owned 50,000-acres of agricultural land back in 1848 on the site of which the township is situated today.

Inverell is a rich area for farmland and minerals. The town is nicknamed “The Sapphire City” and contains plenty of fossicking areas to find precious gemstones like sapphires, diamonds, zircon and quartz. An interesting display of precious stones found in the area is located at the Dejon Sapphire Centre in town.

A great tourist attraction is the National Transport Museum. The museum houses over 120 historic vehicles in an amazing 3528 Square metres of floor space. One of the star attractions to the museum is the Model T Ford, nicknamed the coke wagon as it was used to deliver Coca Cola in the early 1900’s.

Another great attraction to Inverell is the Copeton Waters Skate Park. The 900-hectare adventure park provides plenty of recreational activities for the whole family to enjoy. The lake is superb for swimming, water skiing and canoeing. On land, the park offers several picnic areas to enjoy a traditional Australian Barbecue.

The Macintyre River is also a great place for fishing. There are plenty of Murray Cod, Trout, Catfish, Perch and Redfin to catch. Make sure you abide by the bag and size limits though to protect the resource for the future generations.

For wine connoisseurs, there are many different vineyards to see in Inverell. Wine was grown in the Inverell region as early as the 1850’s when Charles Wyndham started Bukkulla Wines that became internationally famous. Today Gilgai Estate Winery in the nearby area of Gilgai continues that tradition and is very well known for producing one of Australia’s best dry red wines.
